This film slide, part of a set commissioned by Amtrak Marketing, shows the Sunset Limited stopped at the station in Winter Park, Fla. According to the national timetable for spring 1995, the east and west bound trains arrived at Winter Park in the late afternoon. The streamlined letters spelling out the town's name on the canopy are evocative of mid-century modern design; the former Atlantic Coast Line Railroad depot used by Amtrak was built in 1962. In early 2013, the town broke ground for a new and larger station in the same vicinity. The P-40 locomotive wears the Phase III livery introduced in 1979.
In 1995, this route ran between Los Angeles and Miami via New Orleans; service east of New Orleans was suspended following Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
