Greetings one and all...I know it has been a while since I have bombarded your in-box with photos.!! It has been an interesting couple of weeks. Tested on the Georgia Florida Railnet, then headed to Miami and tested the Miami-Dade Transit Line (at night) and now heading north to test the Trans-Terminal Inc (TTI ) in Paris, KY. Then off to Paducah and the P&L. WHEW!!!!
Figured on making the trip out of Florida interesting by following the FEC to Jacksonville....soon found out it was no fun dealing with all the blue-hairs on US Route 1. YIKES...If I ever start driving that badly, SHOOT ME!!!!
Wound up visiting the shops at New Smyrna Beach, FL and shooting the stored units there, then headed to Jacksonville, (Bowden YD). Heard Train 101 doubling and doing air-tests, so found me a nice open area and waited. Shortly FEC 101 on train 101 came through. Sure was nice to see the new SD70-2 on the point.
Into Bowden Yd. The Railroad is friendly enough to allow photography from the paved parking lot between the engine terminal and the Yard Office. Afternoon is best for pictures and luckily that is when I was there!
