Test Trains Will Run on the Corridor Thursday to Prep
SunRail expects to resume its normal service for customers on Friday, Sept. 6—beginning with the regular 5:06 a.m. southbound train from Sanford as well as the 5:30 a.m. southbound train from DeBary. The first northbound train will leave Poinciana at the usual time of 5:45 a.m.
Crews are working to bring the 61.5-mile Central Florida Rail Corridor back online following Hurricane Dorian. This includes restoring equipment and gates at 127 railroad crossings. SunRail trains, as well as Amtrak and CSX freight trains use this corridor.
On Thursday, Sept. 5, businesses and residents along the rail corridor can expect to see SunRail test trains running. These trains will not be running on a set schedule, nor will they be picking up passengers. Trains are testing the corridor to make sure everything is working properly for Friday.
For those who have active SunRail weekly, monthly and annual passes, SunRail is working to credit the number of days this week that SunRail did not run—excluding the Labor Day holiday. This is also a great time for riders to register their SunCards, so they can view their information, and have the benefits of being registered. Customers may view SunCard accounts by logging into the eCustomer website HERE. Customers may also view accounts via the new SunRail app or they may contact SunRail’s Customer Service Center at 1-(855)-724-5411/[email protected].
SunRail thanks its customers for their patience during this recent storm event. For more on the progress and resumption of service, go to sunrail.com.
Please be careful around trains, railroad tracks and crossings, and while at SunRail station platforms. Be Smart. Be Safe.
