Two of the freshest rebuilt/repainted Florida East Coast GP40-2s are ahead of a third matched-paint 'retro' unit consist of 434, 438 and 413 leading southbound train 111-23 over the San Sebastian ... (more)
A matched set of Florida East Coast "Champion" SD40-2s lead southbound train 121-23 over the San Sebastian River at St. Augustine at approximately 22:00 on November 23.
FEC 815, a factory-fresh ES44, leads a new CN and a GE Tier 4 demonstrator westbound through the Walbridge Road grade crossing in Harborcreek, Pa.

The sun is beginning to set on the FEC and CITX SD70M-2s that have worked hard pulling freight up and down the Florida East Coast. With the brand new GE ES44C4s having made their maiden run on the... (more)
FEC SD70M-2 101 leads FEC 416, which is sporting the new blue paint scheme, south towards Miami with train 109 in tow. Scenes of SD70M-2s pulling FEC trains will soon be a thing of the past with ... (more)

They are finally here! A new era begins on the FEC as the very first of 24 ES44C4's take 101 out for the first time. Departing right on time at Bowden.
Rare compound of three different engine types and colours: SD70 FEC 101 in blue-yellow leading GP40 FEC 425 in blue-pink and SD40 FEC 711 in orange-yellow.
In about a month or two a shot like this on 226 will likely be impossible as all 24 ES44's should be here and in service. But for now I enjoy GP40-3's on an intermodal train.
Dual classics with a bit of help lead I think for the first time on 101, a string of Tropicana cars south.
