Florida Carnival Train Catches on Fire

An equipment fire on board one of the cars carrying one of the last carnivals which travels by train, James E. Strates Shows of Taft, Florida, made the headlines in Pasco County today.

Thankfully, no one was injured.

    Jackson, Thanks for the post and comment. I have followed the Florida Circus Train community, since USF and having taken several classes at the New College campus in Sarasota, FL adjacent to the Ringling's homes and the State Ringling Art & Circus Gallery,
