Trilby/McIntosh Stationsgreenspun.com : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread
Does anyone know where I could find photographs or detailed drawings of the former ACL stations at Trilby and McIntosh, Florida especially during the days of passenger operations. I currently have copies of the original Trilby drawings, but none of the McIntosh site. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was at the Dade City Museum recently and inside the Trilby station is a photo of the original station the stood there before it burnt down in 1925 when the whole town of trilby was consumed by fire. The town was original named Macon. It was built at the junction of the FC&P and the Orange Belt Railway. You can still see the foundation there just off of Caboose drive in downtown Trilby.

There is a photo of Trilby in the Florida State Archives at : http://fpc.dos.state.fl.us/general/n043912.jpg

The McIntosh station is still standing in McIntosh. I believe it has been moved back from the right of way about 10-20 feet. It is in fairly decent shape and is used by the townspeople. McIntosh sponsors an arts and crafts fair once a year and the station is usually open. I remember a few railroad pictures inside.

The Trilby station is standing in a park at Dade City,FL. Maybe someone can get you a photo.
