FEC 905 returning to Jax
Amtrak's Silver Star, train blasts through Seville on National Train Day. RP contributor Maryann Pickering waves to the crew.
210 had a bad day...FEC 806 failed causing a rare delay to 210. 432 was placed on the point and with a SD40-2 on the rear of the LNG tank and we have an EMD powered train!

FEC ran a 900 to New Smyrna, this is the return trip. RP contributor Maryann Pickering waves to the crew after getting her shots.

433 who has been our motor for 905 most of this week leads the train back north thru Bunnell. Sun angles are now opening up new angles.
FEC 433 rushes north with FEC's 905 local.
The latest FEC livery I have nick named "Grupo Blue" on FEC motor 412 leading 905. Any rebuilds will get this. The Champ scheme is safe on the mainline motors and won't be replaced.
One of the last trains to Mount Dora as service on the Sorrento Branch came to an end. But you can still catch a train from Tavares to Eustis.
Orlando Northwestern crosses SR 441 returning to Tavares and then to Mt Dora. The Mt Dora trips have stopped but services between Tavares and Eustis continue.
Sadly the last day of service on the Sorrento Branch into Mt. Dora. ONW does continue it's Tavares to Eustis trips. Can you spot "Woody" ?
The mighty 905 roars past the "TARDIS" nickname of our newer 4 runner that replaced my 1995 Jeep I had for about 20 years. Now the Toyota is our new railfan vehicle.
Still a lot of EMD action on the FEC if you know where to look.
