Remarks & Notes 
Ah, the good old days. The Fireman on Mt. Washington Railway Company #10, "Kroflite" is grabbing another shovel of coal about every 20 seconds as his locomotive takes the B-section of the 11 AM Train up Cold Spring Hill on a chilly fall morning. Ahead in the distance, the A-section can be seen tackling the steep grade that immediately precedes the water stop at Waumbek Tank. Classic scenes with multiple steamers assaulting the mountain simultaneously were commonplace for nearly 140 years on Mt. Washington. Alas, many of us took for granted that The Cog would continue to be a bastion of steam power, even as the 21st century approached the end of its first decade. Unfortunately, like lightning from above, the steamers were there in force in this late 2008 scene....and nearly gone less than a year later.

From a "hint" of "Bee" (NKP 765), to colorful "Bees" (KCS), "Bees" w/ attitude, "Bees" that "sting" your eyes, yet in their own way they have "Bee" on display! Equipment that "Buzzes" wearing Yellow & Black! ("Bees" can still "Bee" entering this "hive"!)
