FEC 101 lead by Champion 715 blasts into Bunnell on a warm breezy day. Once in a while you get 2nd gen power on 101.
Here's a trio we could only dream of a few years ago. For the second time in two days, #226 greets the rising sun in the nation's oldest city with a three-pack of "Champions".

FEC 107 leads the daily 107 train west through St. Augustine.
Three Champs and a Susan Komen motor! This is the first time I think this has happened and luck was with me this day. Note the rainbow with the gulf storms in the distance.
The rainy season does not stop the FEC, here FEC train 210 hustles through Durbin in a tropical downpour.
