Water Stations

On the NY to FL lines there were several stations with facilities for passenger cars to take on water. I know about Wildwood for the SAL, Sanford for the ACL, and Jacksonville Terminal. Where were other watering facilities located? Where was the water stop for the FEC?

The watering station for the FEC was New Smyrna Beach as I recall. If not, Seth Bramson(or others) will set it straight.

My impression is that all the major station stops had facilites to water cars. On the ACL, this would have included Florence for sure, and perhaps Savannah, Charleston, and Rocky Mount as well.

Hamlet was a watering station on the SAL. Richmond continues to be a watering station (old Broad Street/ Amtrak's Staples Mill Road). Washington Union Station for northbound and southbound Florida trains.
