Does FEC run any trains to either of these cities? I will be heading to both of these cities and I'd like to see FEC but I'm not able to get to there main bases of operation. I have seen pics of SD40s in Pensacola so how many if any trains run to these places each day?

FEC does not run to either of those cities, basically it only runs from Jacksonville to Miami along the coastal cities.

Not only does the Florida East Coast not go to Tallahassee and Pensacola but their locomotives rarely travel off line unless
one or more is enroute to or from another RA railroad and then it would probably be in tow dead.
If you want to see Florida East Coast trains you will need to work your way south from Jacksonville and not between
Jacksonville and Bowden Yard which is about 7 miles south.

That what I thought and what prompted me to ask the question. Guess the pics were just a good catch for whoever took them. Thanks for the clarification.

Whenever I want to know if something goes somewhere, I look at a map.
