Description

Episode 9 of RICHES Podcast Documentaries: Volusia County Railroad History: An Interview with Seth Bramson. RICHES Podcast Documentaries are short form narrative documentaries that explore Central Florida history and are locally produced. These podcasts can involve the participation or cooperation of local area partners.

Episode 9 features an interview with author Seth Bramson and focuses on passenger rail transportation in Volusia County, but also delves into the effects of rail service changes on the region. In addition, this podcast covers attempts to return passenger traffic to Eastern Volusia on the Florida East Coast Railway (FEC). The FEC, a project of Henry Morrison Flagler, was built primarily in the late 19th and early 20th century. From 1963 to 1977, the company and some of its employees were engaged in one of the longest and most violent labor union battles of the 20th century, which had to be resolved with Federal intervention.

The discussion focuses on passenger rail transportation in Volusia County, but also delves into the effects of rail service changes on the region.
