Late-night SunRail run

0

Know how everyone — including us — laments that SunRail doesn’t run on weekends and late-night hours.

Well we just heard from a faithful rider that SunRail made a late-night weekend run just a few days ago — though it wasn’t planned.

On this past Friday night a northbound Amtrak train hit and destroyed a car that got stuck on the tracks in Seminole County at General Hutchinson parkway and Ronald Reagan Blvd. Thank goodness no one was hurt, but the driver got a ticket.

The crash caused major delays along those tracks that are used by SunRail. The SunRail train that departs Sand Lake Road at 9:15 p.m. didn’t make it to DeBary until 12:18 a.m. on SATURDAY MORNING.

But hey, SunRail got through. SunRail and the riders deserve a gold star for perseverance.
