Florida Railroad Cities - Otter Creek

"Gandy Dancers" working the line somewhere in Levy county.
Note the hand hewn crossties. ~1900
Many fine hard working American citizens built and maintained the railroads.
Early workers labored under the cruel conditions of slavery.

The Patterson - Mcinnis 3 Spot 2-8-0 Steam Locomotive.
Operated within and now located a few miles Southeast of Otter Creek.
Most likely transferred sawn lumber with successors of the Florida Railroad.
