Remarks & Notes 
Sooner or later it was bound to happen. The remaining three GP40-2s in original paint were assigned as the sole power to the company work train. Unfortunately they departed Anchorage with just two cars headed to Birchwood where they would pick up the rest of their train before returning to Anchorage to continue dumping ballast on the APU Spur. I was able to grab a couple of shots before having to head to work. This same power was assigned to the Whittier train the next day but operated under the cover of darkness in both directions. Hopefully this will be repeated......someday.

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"!)
