CSX sold the line from Pensacola to Jacksonville in June 2019 to Florida Gulf and Atlantic Railroad. The trestle works fine.

Perhaps the line has been deactivated. The bridge was listed as possibly being up for replacement... so that might not be a bad thing.

Just wanted to know if something was wrong with the train trussele because no train has ran and seen the bridge has been open for awhile now never seen it open that long ?
