On Thursday, July 19, the Florida Railroad Museum (FRRM) will hold a ground breaking ceremony for its new Parrish Station. The event begins at 9am and will last until 9:30am. The ground breaking will be at the FRRM in Parrish at 12210 83rd Street E, Parrish. The Parrish station will have a ticket office, sales area, real train cars and memorabilia, restrooms and a 5,000-square-foot freight room. Passengers will have a covered waiting area while waiting for the train and when disembarking. The entire building when completed will be over 20,000 square feet. The Florida Railroad Museum was founded in 1982 as the Florida Gulf Coast Railroad Museum after seven founding members donated $100 each to incorporate and open a checking account. From 1982 to present, many train cars, cabooses, an ex-fruit growers express refrigerated car, a stainless steel baggage car plus others have been donated, purchased and traded.
