This one is for Morris Kitty. FEC 107 rounds the curve alongside the tidewater in St. Augustine. More trains are on the way as 117 and 218 are coming back to the schedule.
FEC 111 usually has some extra motors on it, for drop off to the shops at New Smyrna Beach. This time was no exception with at least two GP40-2's for NSB.
FEC 107 arrives ahead of FEC 111 under the skyline of the Nation's oldest city that will be 450 years old this year.
We left Treasure Island at 1 AM to make it back in time for this shot. And of course the train was a bit late. But we got it!
One Two Three Four Five! No 202 or 222 on Sunday put all the power on 226 today! Some Mondays ahead of a slow Sunday can bring extra power on 226.
FEC 226 on a very humid and warm morning.
A bit unusual is 226 with a GEVO and one of the Susan Komen motors. FEC is a strong supporter of Breast Cancer research and frequently showcases the Susan Komen motors.
A massive FEC 224 rolls through St. Augustine on a very warm, humid and just downright muggy morning. This train can sometimes be tough to get these days due to early arrivals.
In pouring rain, lightning and thunder, Florida East Coast train No. 101 flies through a curve approaching St. Augustine, Florida, on January 12, 2015.
During the summer you can get well lit shots of 226 behind the businesses on north end of St, Augustine. Here 226 makes it's regular appearance alongside the tidewater.
The routine passage of FEC 226. This train is pretty much a sure bet on any given morning turning up between 8 AM and 9 AM, though on Sundays can be earlier...or later.
Orange Juice for breakfast! 226 shows up with some juice on the top end of this train. Very uncommon but sometimes juice is picked up on the way north by 226.
FEC 224 slinks across the famous bridge in St. Augustine in this different view.
FEC 226 makes it's normal Saturday appearance. Just before the train showed a rainbow hung in the sky in the background, a real keen observer can see a faint remnant of it.
811 on the 111. This is the first time I have caught this train without extra power on it. Usually motors bound for New Smyrna are ferried by 111 but not this time.
