If you've been looking closely, you might've noticed the lack of an oil bunker in some of these images. FEC locomotives burned coal right up until 1917, when all of the equipment on FEC property finally burned only oil. I'm an oil burner type'a guy myself.

If you do it, make sure you're passing Islamorada and entering the start of the middle keys by sunrise. There is absolutely nothing else on earth as beautiful as watching the sun rise over a long span of concrete arches in the morning.
