FEC is the Florida East Coast. This is the railroad that used to connect the islands all the way to Key West.

BNSF power on NS train crossing FEC's St.Johns River bridge with interchange, coming off CSX trackage! Got it?
It has two tracks and it "was the heaviest yet built for a Strauss Bascule at the time of construction. He also remarks that the bridge is unusual in using Pratt trusses rather than Warren trusses. The design of the counterweights is not one of the four Mallery mentions, being a pair of thin weights which fit inside the tower." [E.W. Wall from Paul Mallery's Bridge and Trestle Handbook]
