The Florida West Coast Railroad Company, Inc. is a 13 mile (21 km) railroad owned by CSF Acquisition, Inc., which acquired it from CSX on December 13, 1987 as its first acquisition. [http://www.rrb.gov/bcd/bcd93-01.pdf] It runs west from a CSX line at Newberry to Trenton.

The railroad used to extend west to Cross City, with a branch south to Chiefland. All the lines were originally owned by the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad.

On February 25, 2004, the company applied to the Surface Transportation Board to abandon almost the whole line. The case was decided March 11, 2004, and the company is now allowed to abandon all but a short piece of track in Trenton, not connected to any other railroads.
