FEC 218 now runs later than it used to essentially running in 224's space that was annulled on July 3rd.
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.
FEC 226 continuing with the LNG testing with trips to and from Miami. A 2nd LNG tender on the way as the ever changing FEC continues to evolve.
FEC 905 with an old school scheme rolling back to Bowden on a very hot day. Was surprised to see a GP38-2 on this train.
It's a humid tropical morning as cloud from gulf thunderstorms begin to flow in, FEC 226 rolls through St. Augustine.
The last 224 for a while as trains 123, 224, 111 & 212 have been abolished due to a downturn in business. Several other trains will be shuffled around to take up the slack.
The LNG set has been making the trip to Miami and back Mon / Tue and Thu / Fri via 121 - 226 of late. However this is the first time it went without GEX 3000 making for a matched set.
FEC 226 on the first day of Summer rolling over the waters of the Tomoka River. This is a shot that only works in the summer.
LNG! FEC continues to test LNG fuel with now another set on the way with 801-802 being converted to join the 800 in LNG service. Testing is being done on 121 / 226 every few days.
FEC 224 rolls through St. Augustine on a warm morning.
First trip to Miami for the LNG set, seen here returning to Jacksonville.. The LNG set is now making several trips a week on 121 / 226 for more testing.
FEC 224 is spotted in Bunnell Florida on a shot that only works right near the summer solstice.
FEC 226 on a warm June morning with a big champ little champ combo.
Memorial Day morning FEC 224 turned up with a string of Tropicana cars in tow. Pretty rare matter of fact I think this was the first time I had seen them on 224.
FEC 226 with four motors rumbles through the tidal marshes of St. Augustine. It's pretty rare to get this many motors on an FEC train but happens on occasion when power needs to be moved.
