The Gulf Wind Chapter is the Tallahassee area affiliate of the National Railway Historical Society, an organization dedicated to the preservation and promotion of our country's railroad history and heritage. The chapter was formed in 1973 by a small group of Leon County residents who shared an interest in railroad history and railroading. The chapter is named for the Seaboard Air Line Railroad's "Gulf Wind" passenger train that provided service for many years between Jacksonville and New Orleans.
Gulf Wind members stay busy with a wide range of activities. The group operates restored motorcars or "speeders" and has participated in motorcar events throughout the region.
The Gulf Wind Chapter is responsible for the ongoing restoration of the historic Lloyd Depot, which is Florida's oldest remaining railroad station. Click here for more details.
