FEC 101 slides along the tidewater in the Nation's Oldest City. It was a very warm and breezy Halloween with temperatures near 86.
FEC 101 on a warm and breezy Halloween in St. Augustine with a mix of old and new paint schemes, but which one is which? This shot only works in fall just before the time change.
FEC 905 lead by GP38-2 #511 still in the Going Places in Florida scheme leads 905 south on a warm breezy Halloween. Pretty uncommon for a GP38-2 to be on this train.
It is a busy Bowden Yard, FEC 905 is seen departing lead by a GP38 which is uncommon for this train.
Trick or Treat! The treat was the CITX unit being 3rd out, which most times SD70M-2's lead.
A spectacular mid 70's sunny day finds FEC 101 with East Coast Hogger rolling south. It's a nature hike to this location, picked 1.6 billion hitchhiker seeds and spurs off my clothing.
One of if not the most unique consist I have ever seen on the FEC. This one including a Tasmanian locomotive being tested along with some progress rail power. Testing at Bayard.
FEC 226 on a cool morning in St. Augustine. The 719 could really use a Champion paint job...badly.
Four motors on the cool 75 degree day on the 101, two of them champions. Unusual for 101 to get 4 motors, but traffic levels seem to be going up.
A visiting railfan waves at 101.
Fall finally gets to Florida with highs only reaching the mid 70's FEC 101 thunders through with a mix of paint schemes. The old UP yellow is falling to the Champion scheme.
87 degrees with building clouds overhead, FEC 101 splits through downtown Bunnell.
Right after NS Job 4 (NS 209) went by, this power move came the other way with some older power thrown in, including an SD60 on the other end of the lashup.
NS Job 4 pulls NS train 209 across the St. Johns River towards FEC's Bowden Yard. It is standard practice for years now for NS and CSX transfers to run directly to Bowden.
One of the Blues Brothers leads FEC 101 out of Sunbeam where two tracks go into one. However, this will be double track to Bayard in the future.
