What we know about Isle Casino’s massive expansion — including a new Tri-Rail station: SunSentinel.com
When the massive overhaul of the Isle Casino eventually takes shape, many of the gamblers, shoppers, office workers and residents who will visit and live there could very well arrive by Tri-Rail.

The board of the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority, which operates the Tri-Rail commuter line, has given its blessing to a new station near the proposed 230-acre redevelopment project at Isle Casino Racing Pompano Park in Pompano Beach. It would be situated on the CSX railroad right of way, which Tri-Rail trains use to carry commuters among cities in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.

The Tri-Rail track is right by the Isle Casino property. “That’s a natural for them to want to put a train station there,” said Greg Harrison, city manager of Pompano Beach.

Interestingly, based on its supposed 6.8 mile distance from the still-standing Deerfield Beach SAL station as shown in the 1936 timetable below, I've long believed the original SAL station for Pompano Beach was exactly where they intend to put this new station, right where SW 3rd St/Racetrack Road crosses the tracks.


But I've never been able to find a picture of the station, and the 1952 aerial map on Historic Aerials shows no trace of a station there:

However, it does show what could be the original SAL station about a mile north, where N. Andrews Road crosses both the tracks and Hammondville Road. Seems to be a spur and small yard of sorts as well. This is only 5.7 miles south of the Deerfield station, though. I suppose the mileposts in the timetable could be off.
