123 is always a gamble but 920 on Tue and Thu is a solid bet for the Stuart AM bridge shot. One of FEC's new retro blues leads this short train.
Jewel of the FEC. One of the best shots to be had is at Stuart and when things just work out right and 123 is just a bit late you can get spectacular results.
Even with the new US 1 bridge the down low classic shot still works. Here FEC 226 with a mix of old and new power rolls north across the tidewater.
The old and the new. FEC's newest model with one of the oldest motors on the line, #415. The 415 arrived in the late 70's early 80's and still is a workhorse for the FEC.
The first train I catch in the first rays of sunlight, P307 heads towards town. CFRC's symbols stick with the train southbound and north so the rule of evens north odds south does not apply.
Sunrail pushes toward Orlando. The system now over a year old is meeting ridership goals, expansion toward Kissimme and to Orlando Airport are likely next.
Southbound CFRC train pushes out of Sanford stations as thunderstorms rage in the distance.
Central Florida Commuter Rail now has been running for over a year. People are riding and cheerful station ambassadors greet you at the stations.
At first only nature is stirring in the Nation's oldest city. Then the deep bellows of whistles echo across the landscape as FEC 226 announces it's presence. Moments later crossing the marsh.
A lucky spell of sun catches the northbound geometry train in Bunnell. The first time this train has had a GE on it, I guess NS wanted to keep pace with the FEC's new GEVO's.
NS Geo train heads south. First time I have ever seen a GE on this train.
FEC 905 hustles back north, unusually running long hood forward after completing work at Sunbelt and Bunnell. Retro blues are becoming more numerous in the GP40-2 fleet.
Stunning! FEC 226 launches across the Tomoka River on a warm morning. Thank you Mr. Hertwig and the FEC for bringing this beautiful livery back.
Sunday Sunday Sunday evening is always a good bet for some FEC action in St. Augustine. Here 107 sweeps in 15 minutes behind 111. On Sundays you can get both between 6-7 PM
While most of railfan nation was after the famous N&W 611, we were after not quite as well known, but yet still interesting FEC "111". FEC 111 always has an interesting assortment of power.
