Re: Another stop added for the LKK48

According to my 1952 employee timetable, Dixie was just another station, no water for trains listed, although there is a well west of there. Not even a flag stop for a local. Dixie did have a packing house as you noted, & I believe it was mostly citrus, currently is some sort of green energy outfit. Notice there is a double spur still in place (last time I looked), and loading docks. They must have shipped quite a bit out of there, would require quite a bit of work for a local or whatever.
Arlington wasn't far away, and that was a m/w camp. Dixie was notable for having one of the last lit semaphores on the line. ONly disappeared maybe 4 years ago.
They keep adding stuff out there we're gonna have a real railroad one of these days.
