Our Visit to The Florida Railroad Museum in Parrish Florida Part 2 of 2

Published on 01/10/21 (scroll down for video, filmed when masks were required for entry): Final post on the Florida Railroad Museum – A shout out to this kind employee/volunteer whose love of trains and patience for those learning, made for an extra special day for Colt. When I originally mentioned we were ‘driving to Parrish’, Colt quickly responded “yes!! Will we see the Eiffel Tower, daddy!!??” So, needless to say, Colt had a high bar set, yet this gentleman exceeded all Pari! could have offered my young son on this day. Thank you to Roy and the rest of the volunteers who run the Florida Railroad Musuem! 🚂

About the Florida Railroad Museum

“The museum’s exhibits and train rides operate on weekends only. Our operating train equipment is not available for viewing during the week.

The train operates on a six-mile rail line between Parrish and Willow, Florida in rural Manatee County. Built by the Seaboard Air Line Railroad in the early 1900s, this was the first line through Manatee County. Following the merger of the Atlantic Coast Line and Seaboard Airline in 1967, this line was downgraded and finally abandoned in 1986.

Each weekend our diesel-powered trains take passengers on an excursion using a variety of open-air, open-window and air-conditioned cars. Trains are operated entirely by museum members volunteering thousands of hours a year to make this unique experience possible.”

Mike Braswell is a Tampa Bay Realtor, serving St Petersburg, Clearwater, all nearby beaches and more. Mike started LovingStPete in October of 2020 after a difficult year took its toll on local businesses. After being cooped up for portions of 2020 (lockdown) Mike and his son decided to get out and explore, helping spread the good word about the local area he loves so much. Often even doing gift card giveaways to support local. LovingStPete is now followed by over 48 thousand people on social media! The majority of posts are informative on fun parks, activities, day trips, great restaurants, and in general provide a comprehensive tour of the area!

Soon after receiving his bachelors in Management Information Systems, Mike developed and then operated a vacation rental advertising business for 10+ years as CEO/Owner. The business was eventually acquired by VRBO. Mike has earned the trust of many large clients over the years. Such as NFL, Wynn Resorts, Blue Cross Blue Shield, VISA, Genuine Parts Company (NAPA Auto Parts), AT&T, and other Fortune 500 companies.

When not spending time with his beautiful wife and energetic son, Mike enjoys boating and is also an avid tennis player. An interesting fact about Mike is that he grew up on an avocado farm with over 15 varieties, some of which you can find in our local Publix/Winn Dixie as his dad still farms the same farm at 87 years old!
