Railfanning Florida - 2

Hi, Our fourth day began in Stuart so I could get another shot I had wanted after seeing it on line.

This view of #109 is from the new U.S. 1 highway bridge over the St. Lucie River.

As there would be no more FEC mainline trains until late afternoon we headed to West Palm to begin our photography of Tri Rail (above and two below). They have some new Brookville Locomotive Works locomotives and

new cab cars.


We then moved to Mangonia Park (above and two below), the end of the line.



In the late afternoon we returned to Stuart for #202 and

#101.

We spent the night in Stuart. As we were leaving the motel the next morning we heard a train blowing for a grade crossing so we went to look for it and found local #920.

We moved south to Ft. Lauderdale in hopes of getting out from under the cloud cover (above and below). We were successful.


Then we drove into downtown to scope out a location at which Jim wanted to shoot #109 (above and two below).



Another location high on our list was in Miami where we caught the Port Job bringing containers to the Port of Miami (above and two below).



The rest of the day was spent photographing Tri Rail, first at Ft. Lauderdale Airport - Dania Beach (above and five below) and






Boca Raton.

Thanks for looking.

I like the view of 704 on the Port Job.
