Remarks & Notes 
Alco S2 #23 pulls a string of baretables across the Islais Creek Bridge in San Francisco after unloading at Pier 80. The cars carried containers and materials for the America's Cup race to be held in San Francisco starting next month. The "America's Cup Express" as they called it was loaded in Rhode Island and a took a PW-NECR-CN-UP routing to San Francisco with SFBR doing the actual spotting of cars at Pier 80, which hasn't seen too much use in recent years and this was certainly one of the first container trains to see San Francisco in over a decade.

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"!)
Prototype for everything . . .

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.
