Remarks & Notes 
After working their newest customer, MotiPark/FCA, the crew of ETL 108 head back to their Lincoln Rd shops about 500 feet behind the camera. MotiPark is a recent branch of Essex Terminal Railway/Morterm Limited that opened last year on the former GM Transmission Plant property. They turned the land the factory occupied and all of the accompanying employee parking into storage lots and loading areas for brand new Dodge Grand Caravans and Chrysler Pacificas built at the nearby FCA Windsor Assembly Plant. Although the storage lot had been set up about a year ago, proper rail service just started last week with local railfans buzzing about seeing autoracks and a new customer on ETR, especially in an area of ETR's network that has seen several customers close/terminate rail service over the last few years (GM, Ford, and Hearn Group). So far it looks like this will be a high carload customer for ETR with the entire loading area full and a line of recently loaded racks sitting in their yard off Lincoln just west of this crossing at the time of this photo. I've been bit by the ETR bug the last few weeks and it seems every time I've gone out to shoot them I've been lucky with good light and photo opportunities.

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"!)
