I have no proverbial dog in this fight; I'm just relaying the news for those that boycott Facebook.

A new excursion operation is being proposed/started up out of the Tavares depot over the Florida Central RR, calling itself the Royal Palm Railway Experience. It's apparently going to use stainless cars, dome, and maybe ex-RBBB cars. They're negotiating with rights holders to operate Polar Express trains this December, and plan to begin dinner/brunch trains and the like in January.

Let's hope this operator can find the magic formula that has so far eluded all of the other various operations on this line. I'd say that luxury cars with (presumably) well functioning air conditioning is a good place to start.
