We are gathering material to use in a future TIES article on the “Florida Sunbeam”. If anyone has any information or material to contribute, please contact us at editor@... or archives@....

The “Sunbeam” was a seasonal train with Pullmans and coaches on the NYC from Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit and Chicago connecting at Cincinnati, then on the CNO&TP, Southern and the GS&F to Hampton, FL to the Seaboard.

Any information about operations at Hampton and if/which Southern or NYC cars operated on the Seaboard. Several good photos are available but “more is better” if they can be located, particularly anything of the train operating on the SAL. Consist information at Detroit, Cincy or Atlanta would be particularly helpful.
