My husband, Bob Pickering shooting the 101 with 802 leading leaving Bowden Yard. He loves taking his shots from up on the Jeep.

The sun is setting on the last SD70M-2's. These and the 104 and 106 are the last ones active on the railway, the rest are sidelined.
Retro! The Florida East Coast Railway's Champion and Retro Blue look good together going over Spruce Creek.
FEC 101 swings out of Bunnell with a mix of GE and EMD power. For now rainbow consists still occur.
Last few trips on 101 with these two as the now most of the SD70M-2's have become sidelined, only ones left running are the former Rail America units.
