A rare late running FEC 210 gave me an opportunity to shoot this train in good light. It is exceptionally rare these days for a northbound to come through Bunnell in good light.
It's a beautiful day and FEC 101 hustles thru Bunnell with three motors. You would never knoiw a hurricane was here 2 weeks ago.
2nd LNG set now in operation. During Matthew, the storm surge covered the bridge here. Now one week later trains are now running normally even with some leftover high water.
First Trains after Hurricane Matthew. An SD40-2 lead 101 exceptionally rare these days. This was due to the GEVO's stuck down south after the hurricane.
FEC has also recently reactivated some of their older motors. The "ex UP yellow" SD40-2's were in storage since the days that the GEVO's took over.
FEC 101 with coal loads rolls into Bunnell as thunderstorms rumble in the distance. Coal comes down the FEC maybe monthly but it is rare for it to be on 101.
FEC 226 with the Breast Cancer Awareness locomotive. This is the site of where the first train depot stood in St. Augustine.
FEC 226 big champ, little champ on this beautiful morning in St. Augustine.
FEC 101 thundering through Colfax with stuff for south Florida. Famous engineer "David Shelly at the throttle.
Five on 226 this morning! Sundays of late FEC 226 has been bringing up extra power on occasion. Note the very high tide.
Through Julia! FEC 905 heads for Bowden as developing Tropical Storm Julia brings squally rains to the area. The work must get done, rain or shine.
FEC 226 brought a surprise, the LNG set which is still undergoing testing. Another LNG set is on the way bracketed by 801 & 802.
FEC 101 blasts through Dorena on an usually dry cooler and clear day for this time of year. Today's 101 had the standard dual GEVO's on the point.
Tropicana Juice Train hustles past the orange groves bound for Tropicana land up north. Nice seeing the AC600.
The famous Juice Train lead by an old school AC600 stops the boats on the Big Manatee River it's self swollen due to Tropical Cyclone Hermine a few days before.
