I was just down in Miami a few weeks ago visiting my family. I went by my father-in-laws new house down in Homestead only to find a set of tracks behind his yard. That line being the CSX homestead extension. I walked the tracks only to find them in rather crappy condition. Ties were rotten and broke, little ballast, unaligned jointed rail, and plenty of rust on the rails. was wondering if the previous plans mentioned some years back about extending Tri-Rail south from MIA to Homestead, if those plans still exist or did it go the way of all those metro-rail extension lines planned that never saw the light of day? I can clearly see that for the most part, the infrastructure is in place, needing new tracks, signal system, and some stations. but would be minimal compared to creating a completely new right of way somewhere else. I see a potential on those rusty tracks out there.
