Double-tracking of the Florida East Coast Railway line between Miami and West Palm Beach is underway.
The second phase, between West Palm Beach and Orlando, still hasn’t gained final environmental approval or financing. All Aboard Florida plans to eventually use the track to run passenger trains between Miami and Orlando.
All Aboard Florida excepts to spend $795 million building stations and adding track between Miami and West Palm Beach. Tri-Rail hopes to share the track for Coastal Link commuter rail service.
An executive for the company also said that AAF has decided on the type of rail cars that will be used. It will be ‘the most technologically advanced train of its type’, and made in the United States.
