From The Palm Beach Post: The $2.9 billion All Aboard Florida project hit a milestone Sunday evening when freight trains started using a newly built bypass track through downtown West Palm Beach — a shift that will allow crews to complete work on the company’s $29 million station and rail platform under construction near CityPlace.

The company plans to run 32 trains a day along the FEC tracks with stops in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Orlando. All Aboard Florida plans to launch service between Miami and West Palm Beach in 2017. The West Palm Beach-to-Orlando span is expected to begin by the end of 2017.

    Will All Aboard Florida be providing free ear plugs so the residents of Martin County can sleep at night?
