I am home but I have quite a way to go to a good recovery although I hope it will arrive eventually. My car is a total loss and I am no longer going to drive again, I am not satisfied as to what happened to me that fateful Thursday Afternoon so as they say on the railroad "I am taking the safe course". About the only news I have received in the last few days is that the engines on the Florida East Coast that have been or soon will be displacdd by the new GE-s will go as follows: The CITX engines (blue SD-70's no. 140, 141 and 142 will go to the Norfolk Southern on lease. The other SD-70's (100-107 inclusive are going to the CSX and the SD-40-2's that the FEC does not keep for their own operations are going to CSX on lease. As I understand the SD-40-2's are going on lease from the FEC and will retain their FEC paint and numbers. This will give some of you out of Florida a good opportunity to see the very attractive appearance of the "Champs". I do not know as yet just which numbers are going and which numbers are staying. Right now the trains are a bit of everyting power wise and watching trains on the FEC is quite interesting. Unfortunately without a car I will not see nearly as much of the change over as I would have but it is still interesting.

Never been so happy to read about out of town paint schemes and second hand diesel power in my life.

Great to see you back Noel!

Best wishes, Noel. Once you're mobile again, perhaps we can stir up some support for you in the local railfan community so you can get out and see what's going on.

Speedy and complete recovery! Extra offerings will be made to The Deity Of The CPF-345 Dunks to help secure that.
