Annual northbound run of the James E. Strates carnival train from their headquarters in Taft to New Jersey. And beyond! Train, once again without coaches (BUT with repainted flats and a few new ex-RBBX) is seen as road crew attaches itself to what will be the rear....they ended up spending three hours or more switching the train out, some miscommunication prevented a local from doing that the day before, when the train was originally supposed to leave, but had no power....still....this particular engine was onhand that day before, ended up being turned back on the daily road train from Jax. A day in the life of railroading. CFRC uses part of their property to store MOW equipment and there is a full transload facility here, but the downturn in ethanol forced them out of the business.
