NS typically runs their Geometry trains the length of the FEC twice a year. Here is a return move, one that originally had us puzzled for sitting in Bowden Yard a week's time before moving south.... (more)
One of the very few times a year you can see non-FEC power south of Bowden Yard!
And the NS Geometry train making the visit to the FEC.
FEC 900 an extra surprised us this morning. The 709 is one of the recently reactivated SD40-2's previously in storage.
Twin ex UP SD40-2's lead 226 on the cool 55 degree morning. When the new GEVO's arrive these and other motors not rebuilt will go into storage.
FEC 111 winds around one of the tightest curve on the FEC mainline. These paint schemes are all eventually on the way out. Yellow SD40-2's likely will be stored soon and the blues repainted.
FEC 709 and GSCX 7362 lead GEXR 432 through Bressau with traffic for Mac Yard.
FEC 101 rumbles through the jungle west of Palm Coast with 709 leading 2 Champs. Tight shot only works mid Fall or Early Spring.
On a cool morning, FEC 226 rounds the curve with SD40-2's X 3. The time is running out on through trains being lead by 2nd gen EMD's on the FEC. 24 ES44C4's are due by year's end.
FEC 226 winds through St. Augustine on a mild winter's morning. FEC 436, Susan Komen motor being the 2nd locomotive in the lashup.
FEC 101 running on a slow order, is seen slowly creeping by a shopping plaza in Cocoa. Eventually this part of the railroad will be double tracked. And the entire main line in the future.
