Brightline has been conducting high-speed testing on its new line to Orlando for the past several weeks.

The high-speed runs have been from 79 m.p.h. to 110 m.p.h, and all reports indicate that the testing is going well.

Since the areas through which the trains are traveling have not seen such high-speed trains in a long time, if ever, law enforcement and Brightline personnel implemented extra precautions at grade crossings by having flaggers and police cars on site to make absolutely sure that motorists are aware of what’s coming.

We have two B-roll videos that have been released by Brightline. These are high-quality Vimeo videos, and the only way to view them is to download them to your computer and play them after they’re downloaded.

We hope you enjoy these videos.
