AFAIK it has not & no one I know up there has mentioned anything since the funding came thru. It shouldn't be too much of a lost op once they're done, they are supposed to only be replacing ties/rail and moving the track a few feet. It may end up looking like downtown Winter Garden once did, where the track is splitting the lanes of traffic as a psuedo-median.

Ocala rock trains just started running thru the connection into the FCEN yard with their own power as of last week, kinda' like the ethanol trains do on the Gordonsville Spur (altho' you get more mainline running with the ethanol trains).
