Remarks & Notes 
Two of the last three GP40-2s to wear their 1975 as delivered black and yellow paint trundle back north through the yard after yarding the first third of their 6015 ft. The empty yard squeezed hard between the icy glacier waters of Prince William Sound and the Kenai Peninsula Coast Ranges will soon be full of container laden railcars shuttling traffic to and from the AML barge which has just arrived after a weeklong journey from Seattle. Whittier is the ARR's main port for shipment of containers which arrive via barge stacked in racks above the main deck which contains 8 tracks for interchange of railcars to the BNSF & UP in Seattle. The concrete structure rising beyond is the long abandoned Buckner Building, once the largest building in Alaska.

Note: the photographer is a railroad employee with permission to be on the property and was wearing all required PPE while taking this photograph.

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