Plant City, Florida is located 25 miles east of Tampa. The camera is located on the Willaford Railroad Museum‘s Viewing Platform. The view is the junction of CSX’s A Line & S Line. The A Line is the former Atlantic Coast Line route between Tampa & Orlando. The S Line is the former Seaboard Air Line between Tampa and Jacksonville. The CSX Plant City Sub also crosses the diamond along the S-Line. The Plant City sub runs south to Fort Myers & Naples.

The flashing red light you see in the distance to the right on the PTZ cam is from a cell phone tower behind the railroad signal, and not a part of the railroad signal.
