FEC Sunbeam Road Time

Post by jhf0551 » Wed Feb 11, 2009 12:39 pm


I heard that Sunbeam Road in southeastern Jacksonville is a good site to see FEC operations. Does anyone know the approximate arrival/departure time of FEC train to Sunbeam Road? Thanks.

Sunbeam Road crossing is at the extreme south end of Jacksonville/Bowden and it is a safe place with parking close by.
There are about 7 weekday departures out of the yard but mostly after dark. Train 101 leaves around 12:30 PM Mon-Thurs.
and 2 hours later on Fri, Sat and Sun. Train 107 leaves about 5:15 PM every day. Rest of them after dark.
Northbound you may get two or three from daybreak until around 10:00 AM then 206 around noon, the rest are after dark.
Reminder, do not trespass, stay off railroad property and you should not have any trouble.
