We crept through the remains of an ice storm via Jeep 4WD to Mance to capture this shot. Winter wonderland.
The first Acela southbound carves a path through 2 feet of snow the day after the big 2010 blizzard that threw the mid Atlantic into chaos. Amtrak however kept running, though with fewer trains.
As the February 2010 blizzard begins to wind down, an HHP 8 slogs out of New Carrollton past a snowbound Metrorail facility. Amtrak manged to keep running in this storm.
The day after the historic blizzard of 2010, transportation is still in chaos, however Amtrak is running, even with half it's trains annulled. Here a southbound regional kicks up the snow.
FEC 226 rolls across the still waters of the San Sebastian River on a warm Sunday morning. Unusual to get two SD40-2's back to back on this train of late.
After reversing at Saybrook, 426 now leads for the trip back to Bowden.
After dropping off the dignitaries bound for the 125th anniversary of Hotel Ponce, the special hustles south to Saybrook to reverse and head back north.
Talk about luck, during the chase I saw 226 coming, calculated the best guess place to stop, we jumped out and just caught the meet with the 714 special.
A beautiful warm morning in St. Augustine finds the 714 leading a special for the 125th anniversary of the Hotel Ponce De Leon (Now Flagler Collage).
With "Henry Flagler" on board, FC 714 takes dignitaries from Magnolia to Palmer St for a horse drawn carriage ride to the former Hotel Ponce, celebrating 125 years since it's opening.
Popping out of the fog, a special participating in the 125th aniversary of hotel Ponce in St. Augustine, heads south. The train picked up dignitaries including "Henry Flagler" bound for the event.
A lucky spell of sun at the right time allows me to catch FEC 101 on a warm 80 degree afternoon.
FEC 224 winds through St. Augustine on a cool morning. It is typical to catch 2 GP40-2's on this train.
Newly returned from Rail America Land, FEC 709 leads 226 on a mild winter morning. FEC 709 I am sure is enjoying the Florida winter vs the winter in Canada, where she has been for a while.
The first through FEC train of 2013 is seen on a warm day in St. Augustine. The rocks on the left are what's left of the "old" US 1 bridge in St. Augustine.
