Cool - preparing to restore the long-gone second track.

The construction is mind-boggling going on between the Orlando airport and the juncture with the FEC near Port Canaveral.

All along 528 there are hundreds of workers clearing trees and grading land.

The rail train was dropping rail in Jupiter and Tequesta today. GP40-2 438 WAS the power.

How long does it take Brightline to test a crossing before it goes into service?  I'm asking to compare it to SMART and how they are taking three months of testing before blessing 2 miles of new ROW.

So far, almost all BL Crossings were already Florida East Coast crossings.

I don't have a specific value, but two to three months sounds right for testing the speed updated crossings. The quiet zone construction and thetesting went on for a long time after that.

This is great... and hopefuly will start in other parts of the US.   It's 50 years overdue.

Good to hear. Thank you for passing along that report.
