SunRail Celebrating One Year!

We always love documenting SunRail events.  SunRail trains were abuzz with activity on May 1, 2015 as the Florida Department of Transportation, local elected officials and celebrity guests joined with passengers for a day-long celebration marking SunRail’s first anniversary of service.

Updated SunRail 101 Videos

It’s always exciting to get the opportunity to do more work for SunRail.  This month we consolidated the SunRail 101 videos down to 3 videos.

Check out the first video here and visit the Ride SunRail Youtube Channel for more info.

Civil War Shipwreck on the

Bartram Trail Video Installation

Sailforth put in two video installations this month: one for River of Lakes Heritage Corridor at the Daytona International Airport and another for the Bartram Trail in Putnam County at the Water Works Environmental Education Center in Palatka.

Sam Carr, chairman of the Bartram Trail in Putnam County says, “This is a great addition to the Environmental Education Center. Visitors will get the video presentation and be able to view all 20 site and workshop videos.  I can’t wait until we get our first group of fifth-graders to learn about Billy Bartram in their home town.

Special thanks to Phil Davis and Scott for their installation and to Dick Franz and Plat Drew for their supervision.  This is a real treasure for the City, the WWEEC and the Bartram Trail in Putnam County.  We hope to get the Bartram ‘mural’ installed in the WW as well.”
