Operations are underway to couple Florida East Coast Railway, or FEC, locomotives No. 433 and No. 428 on the track alongside the Indian River, north of Launch Complex 39 at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Kennedy's Center Planning and Development Directorate has enlisted the locomotives to support a Rail Vibration Test for the Canaveral Port Authority.

The purpose of the test is to collect amplitude, frequency and vibration test data utilizing two Florida East Coast locomotives operating on KSC tracks to ensure that future railroad operations will not affect launch vehicle processing at the center. Buildings instrumented for the test include the Rotation Processing Surge Facility, Thermal Protection Systems Facility, Vehicle Assembly Building, Orbiter Processing Facility and Booster Fabrication Facility.
