Which rr line serviced the phosphate mines at Wade,FL in the early 1920's. I am sure they must have hauled the matrix ore somewhere to be beneficiated. I understand the mines closed down around that time. My father wosrked there for a while.Thanks

Ralph, a station named "Wades" was located approximately six miles south of High Springs on the ACL's line between High Springs and Newberry. This may be the location that you are looking for. Aaron Dowling
