Tracks came first

To those on the “tranquil” Treasure Coast against All Aboard Florida’s trains speeding up and down along FEC tracks: The tracks were there before you moved into the area. Henry Flagler built the tracks along the edge of town to serve both urban and farming communities. Freight has always been the bread and butter of railways. Unless you live in a home built before the railroad and it belonged to your great grandparents. you really don’t have a gripe.
