Here is an image of Jacksonville, Tampa, Key West Railway sometime in the 1800s. The railroad was incorporated in 1878 as the Tampa, Peace Creek and St. Johns Railway with the intent of providing rail service to areas on the west coast of the state. In 1881 the route of the rails were altered and the name changed to the Jacksonville, Tampa, Key West Railway. This left later building the rails to Tampa by the South Florida Railroad.
