Trainscapes: The Way It Was: Juice Train 1997

From YouTuber Distant Signal, comes a classic story about the juice train.  The Tropicana Juice Train was a famous operation for decades. Running from Bradenton, Florida to Tropicana’s distribution facility in Kearney, New Jersey, the “Streak Of Orange” was a highly sought out train by railfans. I produced this “mini-documentary” on the Juice Train in 1997 and 1998. It includes a cab ride from Tampa to Baldwin, Fl. The first leg of the Juice Train’s route to New Jersey. All folded into regular freight service now, the Juice Train is but a memory. But when it was running, it was always an exciting catch.
