Watch the locomotives pulling the train in the open scenes. Sometimes they're F.E.C. (Florida East Coast R.R.) locomotives and at other times they're Family Lines/Seaboard Coast Line/CSX. These are two separate rail lines to Miami that run parallel to each other but are a few miles apart. Much of the opening scene footage, however, seems to have been shot along the CSX (ex-Family Lines, ex-Seaboard Coast Line, ex-Seaboard Air Line) track.
