When the Agricola de Colombres had to forego the delivery of 6 Ten-wheelers in early 1911, Baldwin was able to place these orphans on several short lines in the United States.
Originally chartered as the Gainesville & Gulf, the T & J had built 48 miles by 1911 between Sampson City and Fairfield. In the same period, they replaced the 35-lb/yard (17.5-kg/metre) rail with 56-lb/hard (28-kg/metre) track. Even so, said the Florida , the state of the roadbed needed improvement: "...part of [the track] shows considerably worn rail. A large percentage of the track has not been surfaced and shows badly out of surface and alignment."
Things must have been fixed because the T & J would be known as "The Fruit and Vegetable Route of Florida". As such it moved farm produce up to the Georgia Southern & Florida connection at Gainesville. The ambition to connect the two named cities would never be realized as the line's ends terminated at Sampson and Emathia, 56 miles apart.
The 60 served the T & J and its successor Jacksonville, Gainsville & Gulf until 1944 when it was sold to the Unadilla Valley.
