Remarks & Notes 
High hood GP9 498 built for the Nickle Plate in August of 1956 and numbered 498 then upon N&W's acquisition was renumbered to 2498. It continues to be a work horse on the Winchester and Western roster in the Virginia Division. This and an assortment of other first generation EMD's engines along with a few later models grind their way up and down the rails. Weak and Weary no more!

An ongoing and growing collection of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of the railroad world because most of us don't get out after sundown. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)

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" wearing Yellow & Black! ("Bees" can still "Bee" entering this "hive"!)
