Seaboard service to Lake Wales : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

Was there ever SAL passenger service from Tampa or Bartow to downtown Lake Wales and if so what years?

Tampa to West Lake Wales (not downtown)via Valrico,Durant,Edison,Mulberry and Bartow.I would have to look for the dates.A passenger train also ran from Tampa to Boca Grande via Valrico,Durant,Edison,Bradley,and Arcadia.The "Silver Meteor" connection ran Tampa to Venice via Valrico,Durant,Willow,Palmetto,Bradenton,Sarasota.Track removed shortly after merger and train ran only to Sarasota via exACL.
