Remarks & Notes 
A visit to Kennecott Copper Corporation's Dry Fork Shops on New Year's Day 1979 offered us a treasure trove of vintage GE Electrics parked all around. This grouping included KCC 772 (blt. Nov. 1955), KCC 753 (blt. Apr. 1937) and KCC 703 (blt. Aug. 1928). These were all were living on borrowed time and may not have turned another wheel in revenue service in the copper mine.

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"!)
