New Symrna Beach is not a huge facility but it is more than adequate for the FEC's needs and they do really good work there.
The engines on the Florida East Coast are rather old as engines go except for the 4 new ones with 4 more on the way.
The SD-40-2's and GP-40 and 40-2's are capable of moving good size trains at speeds of 60 MPH over their lines with
relatively few problems. Engines that were considered worn out or obselete by many other railroads are still running up and
down the east coast of Florida on hot van and merchandise trains.
"Dutch", that is one of the best shots that I have seen yet of this locomotive, thanks for posting it. Sure is a great looking
engine when it has something other than NH and circus colors all over it.
