In this November, 1985, photo, the Atlantic Coast Line engine #1504 (a 1919 Pacific) is in front of the Seaboard System Railroad building with the Acosta Bridge (SR13) lift span between the two towers partially obscuring the raised Florida East Coast two track Bascule bridge. The engine has since been relegated to a nearby parking lot. The building is now the CSXT General Office Building. The  SR 13 highway bridge has been replaced by a wider, higher concrete one. And the 1925 replacement of the January 5, 1890, single track railroad swing bridge, the first bridge across the St. Johns River, still remains in FEC ownership. A look at a time in history. 覧 photo by Cliff
