The Pony Ring Is Saved! Shirley Chance Got Her Insurance


I'd like to thank Todd Frederick for posting the message that my computer was down for a couple of days. The message is gone now and I'm back.
These Florida East Coast Railroad tracks are a few hundred yards east of the pony ring that I wrote about a few days ago. It's now located inside The Enchanted Forest, a public park, and the city wanted her to have liability insurance. She was finding it about impossible to find an insurer to write a policy but finally, a couple of days ago there was an article in the Miami Herald announcing the good news.
As for the FEC rairoad tracks, they used to have a pair going in both directions, and North Miami even had its own railroad station. That was back in the days when far more people traveled by train instead of flying. Now the double track has been reduced to single, and it only carries freight and makes a lot of noise. I think that the old wooden ties connecting the tracks made less noise than the new concrete ones. Wood is better at damping vibrations.
