CSX/ACL Bridge over Hillsborough River in Tampa, FL

David Manns provided this video as a comment on a posting by Thomas Trumeter. David indicates the lift starts at 4:00.

His titles indicate this was the Atlantic Coast Line A Line and that it runs down a street. I wondered why he took so much video of just a horn blowing. I decided it was to emphasis how much honking the train has to do because of all of the street crossings. And how slow it has to go on a street.

I had noticed the street running when I was in downtown Tampa to do some bank business. I took these two photos of Polk Street while standing in the Marion Street crossing of Polk Street. (I took more photos because we walked down Polk Street. But I don't want to photo bomb this posting.) All that tedium of street running and bridge operation for just one covered hopper car makes me wonder what the location is of the industry that uses the hopper.
