In 1992, the Society acquired a railroad collection that had been
assembled by the late Bud Hess of Switzerand, Florida and brought
to Green Cove Springs.  This extensive collection includes the highly
visible red caboose, an authentic station building, a crossing gate
and signals, many laterns and hundreds of other items.
