SPRING HILL, Fla. (FOX 13) - Take a ride with the folks from Central Pasco & Gulf Railroad.
They have an amazing setup, and they are celebrating Christmas with rides this weekend at Crews Lake Wilderness Park in Spring Hill. Think of it as a giant model train set, or a miniature real train. It’s actually an inch and a half scale.
The railroad operates on the second Saturday of each month and is open to the public. However, they are running on both days this weekend.
The CP&G is modeled after the Orange Belt Railroad that ran through the area in the late 1800’s. Station names like Trilby, Lachooche, Macon and Lenard are located along the track as they did over 100 years ago on the original Orange Belt. Since 2006, the volunteer membership has installed about 14,000 feet of track including yards and sidings.
