The City of Live Oak would like Amtrak and the Southern Rail Commission to consider making Live Oak an “East of NOLA Route” stop. Live Oak is Amtrak’s best choice for a central stop on the New Orleans to Jacksonville line.
Railroads have been an integral part of Live Oak and Suwannee County history, making living “way down upon the Suwannee River” possible for generations, with a depot ready for use in one of the safest areas of the city, downtown. Established by the tracks, Live Oak’s history is deeply tied to the railroad. It is time to restore Live Oak’s rich heritage and historic railroad legacy.
