Into the future! The first test of an FEC LNG tender was conducted today with a trip from New Smyrna to Jax. This trip was just testing the tender with GECX 3000.
A routine shot of 226 crossing the river in St. Augustine. Pretty reliable train for photographers getting here between 8-9 AM.
FEC 109 was the first train out after Christmas. The late departure allowed for some daytime photos when the train normally goes through in the dark. Here 109 does not stop at New Smyrna Beach.

The one NS heritage motor I have always wanted to see, finally made it to Florida on Christmas Eve. A fitting gift as it leads 229 on this very warm day.
Survivor! 419 stayed on the rails during a rare derailment on 12/20. About 28 hours later 226 comes through.
Ready, set, GO! FEC 101 on the left preps for departure as FEC 107 works the yard on the right. Cool birthday present for me!
FEC 226 with the power from yesterday's Christmas train and a bonus. Dual Susan Komen motors assist the 818. Note the Fed Ex trailers.
On Christmas Train Day, FEC 226 gave us an early present with two 2K Blues leading. This was a common shot not long ago before the GE's. Waded into the river for this shot.
