This is a promotional shot of 3 E9 A locomotives of the Florida East Coast Railway fleet in Downtown Miami in 1955. The E9 A were considered by their crews to be the “Cadillac” of engines due to the power and smooth running.

This photo is from ‘Speedway to Sunshine’ by FEC historian Seth Bramson. This is a must-get book to understand the FEC, train travel and it’s setting in Florida history.
