FEC 226 heads northward through the tidal marshes of St. Augustine.
Champions have turned up on 224 a few times the past few days, possibly showing off for the new Port Everglades in Ft. Lauderdale, where this train comes from.
The first time that I have seen three Champs and a Susan Komen unit on FEC 226 was today. Power was in Ft. Lauderdale for grand opening of a new port facility.
FEC 107 leads the daily 107 train west through St. Augustine.
Three Champs and a Susan Komen motor! This is the first time I think this has happened and luck was with me this day. Note the rainbow with the gulf storms in the distance.
The rainy season does not stop the FEC, here FEC train 210 hustles through Durbin in a tropical downpour.
Four big M's surprised us on 226 this morning...we could not believe it! And now with time running out on these motors we were very pleased to get a quad lashup of them.
FEC 226 with two GP40-2's rolls through the tidal marshes in St. Augustine. This is the best time of year for this angle with the morning sun swung north.
FEC 224 lead by two Champions something that has been pretty rare...also unusual as for about a year 123-224 has been assigned SD70M-2's or a combo of a M and a 40. But not today.
How much longer will scenes like this be possible? By next year we may see all through trains dominated by GEVO's with a few exceptions. Get your pics while you can.
