Objectives & Goals
It has been a goal of mine for 10 years to reincorporate the old Florida Railroad Company. It has been a more specific goal to accomplish this since 1999. Dated documents and graphic artwork prints that I have created, bear this fact out. With the inception of the Yulee Railroad Days project in Alachua county late in 2003, the reincorporation of the company was initiated and achieved. See the links page for these other groups. It is the mission of The Florida Railroad Company Incorporated to reveal, interpret, commemorate and celebrate the significant contributions of The Florida Railroad to Florida history, past and present. This is to be accomplished through the publication on the web, and other media sources, of material I have researched and obtained, and in addition, the creation and sale of items bearing the Florida Railroad name and logo. Items of both present creations and historic recreations are being planned for sale to organizations and individuals.
One current effort underway is championing and promotion of the initiative for establishing a Florida Railroad Transportation Museum What is the most far reaching goal to be achieved? Reconstruct the extension to Cedar Key and operate steam trains over the line! You can be a part of this incredible plan! Get yourself and others involved, and promote the company and our goals! Tell others about this website! Contribute related materials and purchase promotional items from us! (See our Company Store) Develop railroad related items for sale through our company! The Florida Railroad Company encourages the independent creation and development of such items by artist, craftsmen, and others, and may offer incentives for such items.
