Orlando Northwestern's Golden Triangle Service arrives at Mt Dora, with the CR800 in charge. Word is this motor will be around a while, enjoying a winter in Florida.
Up north they get legendary snows. Here we get legendary rain and even in the dry season it is not unheard of to get a good downpour. Such as the case here as 905 starts back toward Jax.
FEC 101 on a chilly day
FEC ran yet another extra. It appears that the FEC has gone back to the 2KBlue scheme as this was a recent repaint.
A rare 141 ran with a solid enthanol train. These are fairly rare and more so rare by running in daylight.
In an exceptionally thick fog, FEC 228 makes it's way toward Jax with a sole little champ leader.
FEC jumps right back in it after Christmas.
The "Polar Express" has just magically popped back to Florida from the "North Pole" heading back to Tavares.
Polar Express trains have been massively popular with departures from the Tavares depot for the "North Pole"
The "Polar Express" pulls from the depot after picking up cast members and heads for a staging area just south of town, then the train "arrives" as patrons get to the station.
Christmas, Florida Style....On Christmas Eve, the "Polar Express" arrives in Tavares. Famed CRR 800 is reportedly going to hang out for a while after the holidays much to the delight of local fans... (more)
FEC 101 blasts through Dorena on the first day of "Winter". Temp today was in the 70's
Very unusual in two aspects, odd lashup of power and running 8 hours late. It did make for a good birthday present, though I hate for the trains to be late, which is very rare on the FEC.
FEC lending Santa a hand on my birthday! Note the lack of LNG tank...unusual that is.
Following, 109 FEC 920 works south. This local works Mon - Fri with Tue / Thu trips south of Ft. Pierce and northward the other three days.
