    Hi ,
    Hearing quite a bit of opposition from locals in the Stuart Florida area. Traffic disruption increased ,noise hazard potential.
    How many trains a day? How long are the trains? Will intersections be blocked for long periods of time ? Noise factor?
    Why no stops before West Palm? Will people ship their cars on the trains?

      I have heard about the opposition, but I think ultimately, this will help Stuart more than it will hurt it. As I recall, Stuart is a beautiful town, unlike most of Florida, a fun little town with non-chain store feel, with freight trains blasting through the center all hours of the day. They are already pretty used to trains there, why not swap freights for passenger trains?
