Running without an LNG gas car, 808 & 805 cross Ormond Creek whilst working FEC226-05, 2300 Hialeah - Bowden, 6 July 2018

Sometimes 230 runs with standard power, but it still looks good going over the Tomoka. The 230 no longer runs.

One of the very few times a year you can see non-FEC power south of Bowden Yard!
Reflections of the future? Maybe if all goes well with LNG tests. 226 was a bit late allowing me to get a shot I wanted.

Occasionally strange consists show up like this ES44, GP38-2 and GP40-2 on 226. The retro blues look good next to the Champion.
The old and the new. FEC's newest model with one of the oldest motors on the line, #415. The 415 arrived in the late 70's early 80's and still is a workhorse for the FEC.
