A pair of SD40's lead a typical massive 226 north towards Bowden through St. Augustine.
FEC 111 winds around one of the tightest curve on the FEC mainline. These paint schemes are all eventually on the way out. Yellow SD40-2's likely will be stored soon and the blues repainted.
FEC 226 twists into St. Augustine, with one of the newest repaint "retro blue" 419 in the middle. GE's are coming and when they arrive anything not rebuilt will go into storage and M-2's gone.
419 is one of the new repaints
FEC 226 with a rainbow of power on a muggy morning in St. Augustine. Pretty rare to have rock on this train.
FEC 226 reflects on the tidewater in St. Augustine. The time is growing short for the big M's as the first GEVO's should begin to filter in within a month or so.
Two FEC Champions lead 226 across the tidewater of the San Sebastian River this morning.
SD40-2's with a GP40-2 lug 226 across the marshes. No more SD40-2's will be repainted into the Champion scheme due to the expected arrival of the GEVO's that will sideline these motors.
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.
