It's a tropical breezy day as 226 riding 224's approach signals crosses the tidewater in the Nations Oldest City.
The old and the new. One of the newest motors on the FEC leads FEC 411 one of the oldest if not the oldest GP40-2 on the FEC roster. FEC 226 in da marsh.
The always impressive FEC 111 always has an interesting lash up of power, some of it bound for New Smyrna Beach. Now 111 goes to Ft. Peirce.
FEC 226 rolls through the marshes. This is my favorite photo location in St. Augustine.
Today's 226 steps across the high tidewater at St. Augustine.
Shots back at the marsh means Summer is almost here! FEC 226 is lead by champions, another shot I been wanting since the new motors arrived, but must wait for the light to be right.

FEC 107 takes the curve at St. Augustine in the late evening sun. The time change has given us back our Sunday trains.
As the sun begins to lower, FEC 107 squeezes through the tightest curve on the mainline. Sunday evening is a good time to be in St. Aug you can catch 111 and 107 inside of an hour.
One of FEC's gevo's leads four other motors on train 111. Shots of this train are now possible due to the time change. It appears that last EMD only train outside of locals has fallen to GE.
