Location: West Palm Beach, FL more... Builder/Model:  E7(A) more...  

The City of Miami is seen rolling through W. Palm Beach with a classic from Detroit across the fence in the parking lot on a Monday, June 28, 1960. That is a 1954 Mercury behind the pole at the right.

Beautiful and rare photo of, actually, the City of Miami (note the City of Miami and South Wind--trains No. 5 and 6 on alternate days--carried the head-end express cars and RPO, the Champion didn't) and close examination reveals the Illinois Central orange and brown colors on the passenger cars. But no problem, this and others are beautiful and rare photos of the FEC passenger trains in the 1960-era, thanks for sharing! (thanks for your information Mr. Gray -webmaster)

Just finished up a hardcover-all color book on the FEC. Wish I had seen those photos during the writing process. All are good enough to have made the book-hands down!
