Secondary Source

For my secondary source I chose an article about how the impact of the dinky line had on winter park and the rollins community. The article describes the scenic route that was taken by the lines along the wooded shores of Lake Virgina. The first train from orlando to winter park arrived in Jan 1889 forever changing how rollins students commuted to the college who had family in orlando. The train itself was a short gauge track and was very small compared to other tracks. In any case this article is a great article depicting the impact this imfamous line had on winter park.
