In the Wikipedia article it states that FLDOT Purchased the existing A Line ROW (Deland to Poinciana) from CSX relegating them to tenant status with a majority of their trains relocating to the S Line, SunRails operations complex is located on AMTRAKS Sanfords Autotrain property, I'm just curious if they are going to use CSX's existing A Line frequencies since they self dispatch, I conducted searches on Home | FCC.gov & AntennaSearch - Search for Cell Towers, Cell Reception, Hidden Antennas and more. but as far as I can ascertain no frequency changes have occurred.

From FloridaRailroad Yahoo group via D. Synder (Orlando Rail Log)

Central Florida Rail Corridor's (CFRC) SunRail phase 1
commuter rail service began May 1st running from
Debary to Sand Lake Rd Orlando/Taft. This is a section
of the "A Line" purchased from CSXT.

Phase 2 will continue north to Deland and south to
Kissimmee and Poinciana at a later time.

The Central Florida Rail Corridor (CFRC) extends from
milepost A749.6 at SE Deland to 813.8 at Poinciana.
For radio frequencies the road channel is AAR 41 at
160.725, dispatch is AAR 97 at 161.565, and an extra
channel is AAR 47 at 160.815 mhz.

Stations in phase 1 (north to south) are at Debary, Sanford,
Lake Mary, Longwood, Altamonte Springs, Maitland, Winter Park,
Florida Hospital Orlando, Lynx Bus station, Church Street
Station, Orlando Station, and Sand Lake Rd (Taft). Phase 2
will extend on north to Deland and south to Kissimmee and
Poinciana.

SunRail trains operate with a southbound cab control car in
the 2000 series, a bi-level coach car, and a 3000 HP Motivepower
(MPI) MP32PH-Q locomotive #100-106 pushing which are
rebuilt from EMD GP40WH's. On northbound trains the engine
pulls. Trains have a capacity of 300 passengers. The OCC or
Operations Communications Center is in the north end of Rand
Yard Sanford. The VMSF Vehicle Maintenance and Service Facility
is adjacent to the OCC.
