JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A Jacksonville television network will sponsor Trains Magazine’s newest video in production, Selling Sunshine: The Florida Trains. Managers at WJCT in Jacksonville say they will be the presenting station for the new production.

The one-hour program put together by Richard W. Luckin of Luckin Productions will be published and marketed in conjunction with Kalmbach Publishing’s Trains Magazine.

The program will explore why railroads moved to Florida and will tell the story about two major Florida rail developers — Henry Flagler and Henry Plant. Another chapter will discuss some of the brightly colored diesel streamliners that rolled over Florida rails in the late 1930s.

Actor Michael Gross and rail historian Peter A. Hansen are also part of the program.

The new DVD will be available from Trains Magazine in August 2017.
