The FEC must cross numerous waterways on it's route. This crossing at the Tomoka river is one of my favorites.
FEC 101 rolls through the tropical rains on a Sunday afternoon. Today's 101 had the standard GEVO X 2 along with the standard daily deluge we usually get in the summer.
A peaceful morning in St. Augustine finds 226 crossing the tidewater. The old "classic" shot is still available even with the new US 1 bridge that now offers many angles here.
This one is for Morris Kitty. FEC 107 rounds the curve alongside the tidewater in St. Augustine. More trains are on the way as 117 and 218 are coming back to the schedule.
Out of the shadows and into the light....FEC 226 with 4 GEVO's roars across the Tomoka River. For Morris Kitty who passed on into the light today.
FEC 111 usually has some extra motors on it, for drop off to the shops at New Smyrna Beach. This time was no exception with at least two GP40-2's for NSB.
FEC 107 arrives ahead of FEC 111 under the skyline of the Nation's oldest city that will be 450 years old this year.
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.
One, Two, Three, Four, Five, Six! What seems to be a Monday thing, FEC 226 comes north with 6 motors, deadheading power from 202 and 222 that did not run the day before.
FEC 101 blasts through south Dorena Miami bound. Today's 101 had a new person on board who will act as liaison between the FEC and All Aboard Florida, getting her look at the railway.
A tropical humid morning greets FEC 226 through Bunnell. Today's 226 had one GEVO and a retro blue GP40-2. Some side views are workable in the summer here.
FEC 210 rolls through afternoon tropical rains at Dorena. The rainy season is in full swing with daily doses of downpours, occasionally thundery.
One Two Three Four Five! No 202 or 222 on Sunday put all the power on 226 today! Some Mondays ahead of a slow Sunday can bring extra power on 226.
The short version of CSX's Tropicana Juice Train hustles out of Palmetto passing Port Manatee. SD70MAC 2nd out on this run.
