Northbound 226 train rolling through St. Augustine on another hot and humid morning.
FEC 226 launches across the Tomoka River with Champion 703 on the point. This shot generally only works late Spring to late Summer when the morning sun angle gets in here.
May is traditionally a good month to enjoy the extended daylight and grab #107....before the storms of summer take over the skies more often than not.
FEC 224 lead by two Champions something that has been pretty rare...also unusual as for about a year 123-224 has been assigned SD70M-2's or a combo of a M and a 40. But not today.
Two Champs on 224! the first time I have seen two champs on 224 though it had indeed happened one time before. Usually this train gets an SD70M-2 leader.
Two Champs & a pinky roll north with train 210 as the sun comes out on a mostly cloudy day.
FEC 210 rumbles north as thunderstorms begin to wind down. This unique consist of motive power, two champs and a Susan Komen motor was a first for trains 101 and 210.
FEC 101 lead by a combination of Champion and Susan Komen schemed motors, first time that has happened on this train, heading south on a mild unsettled day.
FEC 101 has a speed restriction allowing us to catch the train again in Bunnell. Look closely and you can see Maryann waving at the train.
East Coast Hogger exchanges waves with rp.net contributor Maryann Pickering (my wife now!) with three Champs on 101. Student engineer at the throttle hustles 6500 ft of stuff southward.
