Remarks & Notes 
As a kid, the "Ma & Pa" was one of those legendary railroads that had a catchy name and equipment that seemed to always show up as models (usually brass steam engines and wooden freight car kits). And so, many (many) decades later, it was a little surreal to finally encounter an actual Maryland and Pennsylvania engine, even if it was wearing parent Yorkrail's YRC reporting marks. Number 84 is an SW9, built by EMD in September 1952 as Pittsburgh & Lake Erie 8952 (later P&LE 1243, then Montour 85). As one might guess by the missing bell, this 61-year-old locomotive was not in service when photographed on September 28th, 2013.

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"!)
