        One of the oldest surviving railroads in America, The Florida East Coast Railway, or FEC, is a large regional line that serves, go figure, the east coast of Florida. Its tracks run between Miami and Jacksonville, FL., where it interchanges with its main railroading partner Norfolk Southern. It also exchanges to a lesser extent with CSX in Jacksonville. For a little history of the FEC try this link. My page is about pictures of the FEC and my short experience with the railroad.

        I had the good fortune to spend a few months along the FEC while working in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, just 12 miles or so north of West Palm Beach, FL.  During the later part of February until mid May of 2002, I would find my way to the FEC lines to see what I could see. The FEC is operates a late afternoon / night schedule on this end of the state, but I was still able to find some good action to photograph early NB trains headed for Jacksonville.

        A short trip in July allowed me to catch a a couple in St. Augustine as well as a few more in the south part of the line.  Now back for an encore, I am spending most of October and into early November, trying to catch up with the FEC in a few more newer areas (new to me anyway) including areas south of WPB and north of Stuart.  Wish me luck!

I've also created prepared a chart which shows daylight locations of scheduled FEC trains!
