FEC 101 at Colfax.
Irma Recovery The FEC continues to bounce back after Irma, today's 101 featured 12,000 ft(!). Extras and massive freights have been running to make up for the disruption last week.
Due to a derailment on NS the day before, FEC had to play catch up with this mid day extra today.
FEC 109 running unusually late this morning giving me a rare chance to shoot this train in daylight.
FEC 101 on a cool day.
FEC 101 rolling through a bit early allowing me to nail this shot before the shadows creep in.
FEC 218 weaving through St. Augustine. 218 is a Ft. Lauderdale - Jax train that runs daily but Sunday. This was train #2 of the parade this morning.
FEC train 202 rolls north through Jupiter, FL with a little bit of everything the FEC roster has to offer (except for the rare GP38-2/3).
FEC 224 rolls through St. Augustine on a warm morning.
FEC 226 with Tropicana cars, something that happened for a few Sundays in May. Usually the Tropicana cars are on the much earlier 222.
My first trains after my surgery. I was glad to be out again.
FEC 222 running usually late rolls into the Nation's oldest city.
On the approach to NE Bayard.
FEC train 109 pushes on south across the Palm Beach/Broward county line with a ES44C4, a GP40-2, and a variety of freight for Fort Lauderdale and Miami.
A routine shot of 226 crossing the river in St. Augustine. Pretty reliable train for photographers getting here between 8-9 AM.
