The Florida East Coast Railway was and still is a railroad in the east part of Florida. Lines operated by it should be tagged operator=FEC; lines formerly operated by it or a subsidiary should be tagged old_railway_operator=FEC in addition to railway=rail (if still in use) or railway=abandoned.

See Wikipedia:WikiProject Trains/ICC valuations/Florida East Coast Railway for a chronology (which may have some errors) of lines constructed by the FEC and predecessors, compiled by the Interstate Commerce Commission in 1916.
