A rare late running 222 rolls thru St. Augustine at first light the first of a 4 train parade. The 222 is usually through here before sunrise though sometimes can be late.
FEC 226 swings through St. Augustine with 5 motors (you have to look hard to see the additional 2 behind the LNG). Note the little buoy on the ballast leftover from Hurricane Matthew.
FEC 226 rolls across the high water in St. Augustine with one of the LNG sets. The oxidation of the rails from them being submerged in Matthew the month before is still evident.

FEC has also recently reactivated some of their older motors. The "ex UP yellow" SD40-2's were in storage since the days that the GEVO's took over.

FEC 226 brought a surprise, the LNG set which is still undergoing testing. Another LNG set is on the way bracketed by 801 & 802.

Lately 226 has been getting here ahead of the sun on Sundays but today he was later and had three motors. Cloud from a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico can be seen in the distance.
