The Geometry train heads north as the typical afternoon thunderstorms move in.
The annual or sometimes bi annual Geometry train made an appearance today. It was great seeing one of FEC's little champs.
FEC gets it done, instead of running two trains you can combine them into one. One transformer and more rail for Virgin Trains USA heading south.
FEC ran a rail train added a transformer load to it as well.. FEC does things efficiently.
After running the lead up to the Port of Everglades, the FEC 703 and NS research train have backed out to the mainline and are back up to track speed as they fly under the Fort Lauderdale Internat... (more)

FEC ran a 141 extra today, with two EMD's leading, something fairly rare these days.
Four locomotives landed on 226 today, seen here approaching the tidewater in St. Augustine. The Champion scheme is very popular with fans.
A double rarity, FEC 226 with two champs, with a long hood forward leader and about 4-5 hours late on the normally on time FEC. Suspect one motor failed and they had to swap.
FEC 226 is lead by two champs on this spectacular morning in the Nation's oldest city.
121 races south through West Palm Beach.
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.
