FEC train 226 rolls into the nations oldest city.
FEC 101 giving Santa a hand.
Christmas Florida Style! The FEC Toys for Tots train at St. Augustine. After a few years of GEVO's twin "little champs" were featured motors this year first time for this train.
FEC 101 kicking up dust at Colfax running with some autoracks on the head end.
FEC 226 on a warm morning with some extra power which sometimes occurs on a Sunday. Meanwhile 60-70 miles north of here severe storms rage in south Georgia.
The rail train, now empty hustles back north after working down to Spruce Creek.
FEC 101 runs around FEC 905, which is working Florida Rock off of the main.

FEC 226 brings every locomotive type in use on the FEC through St. Augustine this morning.

As unsettled weather moves in, FEC 101 rolls out of Bunnell. Dedicated to "Ron Charles" widely known locally as the news voice of WNZF radio. He passed on this week.
Rolling southward, FEC 101 approaches Bunnell on a very warm election day. Many have voted the "Champion" livery as one of the prettiest out there but there are others the I think can compete.
With a little sunlight to spare for the shot, FEC 905 returns north with the New Smyrna Beach haul. This appears to be a random move during the week.
