Happy National Train Day!
Amtrak's Silver Star brought an early birthday present today. I believe this is the first visit for this Phase 2 repaint in Florida.
Amtrak 91 lead solo by the Phase 1 motor of the Heritage Fleet.
Hurricane Florence disruptions gave us a truncated Sliver Star with a very rare leader. The last time I caught a Dash 8 leader here on Amtrak was June 6,2008 which is also in the database.
The Silver Star rumbles across the St. Johns River Bridge.
Amtrak 91 speeding through Seville bound for Tampa and Miami.
The Silver Star slides through Seville Florida disturbing the quiet briefly. Of note the Dash 8 2nd motor, which is uncommon but not rare.
Amtrak's Silver Star has changed a bit over the years now without a diner and one less sleeper.

On Time! Amtrak 91 blasts through rural Seville Florida rushing south with Deland, Winter Park, Orlando, Lakeland, Tampa and all stops to Miami in mind.
Leftover clouds from the ocean storm the day before clear just in time as 91 departs Palatka.
Amtrak PO91 the Silver Star slides into Seville on time.
Amtrak 184 makes another appearance in Florida once again on a steamy hot morning.
Yes that guy, "did" just make it..Amtrak 184 returns to Florida this time "turkey hunting" on this steamy morning. The turkey "just" made it across as 91 bored down at 79 mph.
Spring has sprung here in Florida matter of fact it's feeling like summer already. Temps already in the 70's greet Amtrak 91 in Seville.
