FEC 905 with 2K Blue 421 leading. For years 905 was long hood forward south but in the past year now runs short hood forward south and long back north.
First train for me of 2016. Started with a bang...four motors on 101.
FEC 101 rolls through Colfax on a beautiful warm afternoon. Famous East Coast Hogger at the throttle.
FEC 101 slams through a crossing at Colfax finding a lucky beam of sunlight on an unsettled day. Today's 101 was 12,000 ft.
FEC 101 heads out of an intense tropical rainshower. Just a few minutes before the train arrived a torrential downpour was in progress but cleared just in time for this shot.
FEC 101 blasts through a squally tropical deluge partially from the remains of Erika. Heavy rains have caused the NWS to post Flood Watches for the region, as the FEC keeps going.
The hard working crew of FEC 905 packs in a long day and heads back to Bowden yard after working multiple industries between there and Dorena a round trip of over 120 miles.
FEC 226 with a lashup of six motors rolls through Colfax on a unsettled morning. No Sunday 202 or 222 = 6 on 226 on Monday. You can also see the unloading operation at Colfax.
The hard working crew of FEC 905 hustles back towards Bowden Yard. The 421 is in the Millennium Blue scheme which is getting harder to find with the retro blue repaints coming in.
Came out here to see the local train heading back to Bowden yard.
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.
In the last rays of the sun, Retro Blue 433 leads 905 back north after working sunbelt chemicals, then meeting 107 at Dorena. It is uncommon for the long hood to face north on 905.
Florida East Coast 101 with two GEVO's on it's journey towards Miami.
Who wudda thunk a few years ago that GE rule the FEC...but here we are. 101 with high priority stuff for southern Florida hustles through Colfax lead by 2 C4's.
Here comes 101
