Another day, another opposition group to the All Aboard Florida rail project?

I've been writing about some of the organized groups that have formed to thwart the Miami-to-Orlando train service planned for the FEC rail tracks that runs along the dense eastern corridor of SoFla (east of 95). On Monday, I got an email from another one, Citizens Against The Train, along with links to their website and a new TV ad it produced and posted on YouTube.

I have a meeting set up with the All Aboard Florida folks for later today, where I expect they'll give more of their side of the story about the need/efficacy/market for the passenger rail and to try to ameliorate concerns that I've been raising with my recent columns. I'll be sure to be writing more about this in coming weeks and months.
