Blog: Olly WehringAll aboard the Tropicana Train

Olly Wehring | 13 November 2012

Apropos of little else but the fact that I like trains, take a look at this footage, below.

The clip is filmed from the front of a CSX Evolution locomotive pulling the Tropicana 'Juice Train' that carries orange juice from Bradenton in Florida to Jersey City in New Jersey. That's 1,200 miles in almost 48 hours.

Luckily for you, the journey has been sped up to take less than three minutes.

All aboard.
