Gated entrance to the secure tank car storage area at Plant City, Florida, Potato Spur, used to store tank cars when there was no room at Triest Irrigation unloading facility, tank cars are carrying pesticides, this traffic ended around 2015. This compound holds five cars and Triest Irrigation can hold four, my model can hold three and three.

CSX train Q-709, the Plant City switcher, about to return to Plant City, Florida, pushing the train using a shoving platform, the crew person on board will direct the engineer in the locomotive cab by radio, and use a hand held air horn to sound a warning at grade crossings. Shoving platforms are often converted cabooses, with all facilities removed.
