History


Tracing its lineage back to December 31, 1885, the day on which the legendary Henry M. Flagler purchased the Jacksonville, St. Augustine & Halifax River Railway, Florida East Coast (FEC) Railway was born in September of 1895 after several name changes. Henry Flagler and the railroad founded Palm Beach, Miami and most of the east coast of Florida, and built the fabled Key West Extension connecting the chain of islands to the mainland. Known for many years for its passenger trains, the last regularly scheduled passenger train ran on July 31, 1968, due to the work stoppage by the non-operating unions that began on January 22, 1963. The company continues this same level of innovation and entrepreneurial spirit today.
