FCEN movements over the US 441 bridge generally happens maybe once every few years. Here seen returning from a storage move on the Sorrento Branch.
FEC 226 with FEC stacks right behind the motors, a shot I been wanting for a while. Finally worked out on this cool morning.
It is a foggy cool morning in the Nation's Oldest City as FEC 226 swings through.
FEC 101 blasts through the "metropolis" of Korona Florida hauling high priority stuff to South Florida. Dual C4's seems to be the norm now on this train.
FEC 101 blasts south on a rather cool 55 degree day in north Florida. The entire length of the 6500 ft train can be seen lead by FEC 815 & 814.
FEC 905 with 2K Blue 421 leading. For years 905 was long hood forward south but in the past year now runs short hood forward south and long back north.
First train for me of 2016. Started with a bang...four motors on 101.
FEC 101 sweeps out of Bunnell on a warm afternoon. My last catch of 2015.
First test! The always progressive and forward thinking FEC ran its first test of the LNG tender. Further tests between New Syrmna & Jax will be done this year.
Into the future! The first test of an FEC LNG tender was conducted today with a trip from New Smyrna to Jax. This trip was just testing the tender with GECX 3000.
A routine shot of 226 crossing the river in St. Augustine. Pretty reliable train for photographers getting here between 8-9 AM.
FEC 109 was the first train out after Christmas. The late departure allowed for some daytime photos when the train normally goes through in the dark. Here 109 does not stop at New Smyrna Beach.

The one NS heritage motor I have always wanted to see, finally made it to Florida on Christmas Eve. A fitting gift as it leads 229 on this very warm day.
Survivor! 419 stayed on the rails during a rare derailment on 12/20. About 28 hours later 226 comes through.
