Lately 226 has been getting here ahead of the sun on Sundays but today he was later and had three motors. Cloud from a disturbance in the Gulf of Mexico can be seen in the distance.
One of the best shots to be had on the FEC is now easier with FEC 109's schedule change. This once was a if you lucky shot but now is almost routine every day but Sunday chance here.

The last 224 for a while as trains 123, 224, 111 & 212 have been abolished due to a downturn in business. Several other trains will be shuffled around to take up the slack.
The LNG set has been making the trip to Miami and back Mon / Tue and Thu / Fri via 121 - 226 of late. However this is the first time it went without GEX 3000 making for a matched set.
