Day before Thanksgiving and the FEC is hard at work bringing "stuff" to Miami. The home in the background is over 100 years old.
Work train FEC 415 rolls into Bunnell. Work trains are somewhat common as the FEC strives to keep it's ROW in top shape.
FEC 101 rolls through a tropical thundery rain, typical of the Florida summer.
Old Skewl, New Skewl Two EMD's with new and old liveries bring the 905 north with the normal Wed / Fri New Smyrna loads.
FEC 905 roars north through Bunnell, Florida with extra freight from New Smyrna Beach a Wed & Friday move.
FEC 226 northbound in Bunnell with what is now standard, an LNG tender.
They ran a FEC 900 again, this time with dual Retro Blues. The 900 typically runs when extra cars need to be run up from New Smyrna Beach that won't fit on 202.
FEC 101 through Bunnell
FEC 109 running unusually late this morning giving me a rare chance to shoot this train in daylight.
FEC 101 on the first day of March
FEC 141 the first train out after New Years. The last few years FEC has thrown out a morning extra after holiday shut downs, 2016 was no exception.
FEC 900 an extra surprised us this morning. The 709 is one of the recently reactivated SD40-2's previously in storage.
A rare late running FEC 210 gave me an opportunity to shoot this train in good light. It is exceptionally rare these days for a northbound to come through Bunnell in good light.
FEC 210 running about 2-3 hours late splits through Bunnell helping bring some UPS and other stuff northward. Very rare for anything on the FEC to be late.
Testing Testing! FEC extra testing LNG fuel the first actual full test. The train ran from Jax to New Smyrna and back.
