Here we go. Oslo Citrus. Now I am oriented.
East side photo of that will be difficult all the traffic and its blocked by trees.I can't get a wide pano like I did.in taking a photo of it as its likely to be sold and then razed. Ft.pierce had a few on the river who also shipped via boat which predate the Oslo one I believe

Speed is important with perishables like citrus.

Trains would be easier to load. Trains could come right up to the processing plant door, and cargo could be wheeled in. Ships would have people carrying cargo down ramps into the hold.

The Brits became a world power by shipping natural resources to their island, but they also used trains for internal transport.

Before 1894,they were docks these had rails to simply load a cart,not all rails were for train but
Was oxen or mule driven .

Okay, an ox driven cart on tracks to the docks. Then load the citrus on a ship. Clever people.

Whether to use ships or trains seems to depend on local geography. Each has their application.

Accounts of that are mentioned by Gifford
Wow. Trains have changed dramatically. That steam engine seemed more like a toy compared today's diesel/electric behemoths. Only one passenger car hooked up to it, and it drove backward on the return trip.

When they had enough traffic to ship citrus, they only hooked up a total of two combination baggage and passenger cars, two flat cars and one box car. 3 cargo cars in total. Nowadays they run 100 cars or so on long haul freight trains.

A lot of train trips to keep the citrus moving. I imagine they delivered it a bit at a time throughout the season. Almost daily runs would keep the citrus fresh for the customers.
