PBPost: Treasure Coast still not giving up the fight vs All Aboard Florida


Sally Swartz of The Palm Beach Post

From The Palm Beach Post’s award-winning blogger, Sally Swartz:  The fight to stop All Aboard Florida from ruining Treasure Coast downtowns and neighborhoods, slowing ambulances and endangering pedestrians at railway crossings is far from over.

The speedy trains “would decimate” Stuart and other Treasure Coast communities, former American Airlines executive Robert Crandall told Martin County’s League of Women Voters at a meeting in Stuart.

All Aboard Florida, which has renamed its train and campaign “Brightline,” would send 32 trains daily from Miami to Orlando, with stops in Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach.

The express passenger trains would zip through Treasure Coast communities at 80 mph non-stop, compared with cargo trains that now rattle through towns at about 30 mph.
