Post subject:  Winter Park FL Railroad cars

Just north of the Winter Park FL Amtrak station, on the east side of the tracks, there are apparently 5 box? cars and 1 passenger car (possibly a lightweight open end observation). I caught a glimpse going south, but on my return it was too dark to see anything. Google Earth 28 deg. 36 min 5 sec north, 81 deg. 21 min 13 sec west. I can't tell much from the view. Anyone have any information/history? Obviously landlocked or are they just a mockup?

All the cars are real. Not sure of the history behind the boxcars, probably SCL/ACL/SAL.

The Passenger car is a Korean War era US Army hospital car. ACF or Pullman I believe.
