They're gorgeous, but the East Wind terminated in Washington DC, and I'm pretty sure the FEC had nothing to do with it.  Perhaps you were thinking of the South Wind?
Did some of the cars run through to/from Florida via the Champions or other ACL trains?  Or did everyone change trains in Washington?

The East Wind was a Washington-to-Portland Maine summer tourist train, so no Florida connection.

I'm sorry Dave, I'm afraid I can't do that.

The South Wind often had ACL E3/E6s on it coming into Chicago....

Yes, but why so much talk about secondary winds?  Let's talk about real trains like the West Wind. <grin>
