    Got the word on this directly from the JAX AMTRAK Station Master on Sunday PM when picking the latest AMTRAK passenger timetables material. Also discussed the necessity for reacquiring passenger service not bus transport to New Orleans via the re-instatement of either the Gulf Breeze or another multi-day train from Jacksonville through Tallehassee, FL [Florida is the only Southern state capital without an AMTRAK rail connection] to New Orleans, LA. A current LOGICAL missing connection link for Florida Tourism, and AMTRAK to the Mid-west, and Western cities and states. Great Scott!!! Hint, hint: Question: Gov. Rick Scott, "you ran "wanting to create more jobs for Floridians", or is it only your own job via re-election your really worried about ???"

    For the news media to say the train crashed into the car is politically incorrect. Proper terminology would be is that the car illegally stopped in front of an oncoming train.
