Remarks & Notes 
FMG 909 was rebuilt by the NS Juniata Diesel Shops in Altoona, PA. This front view shows of the 90MAC-H cab face and a great looking plow decked out with barricade stripes. Notice the small white FMG logo decal applied to these units which have not been applied to the SD70ACe deliveries. The 905 through 909 were all completed in the August through September 2011 time range. The units were former UP SD90MAC-H units converted to SD9043AC standards. The units received many upgrades and external details to bring them up to Australian safety standard. After this photo was made the tropical roof was applied. Photo taken with proper permissions.

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"!)

An exclamation attributed to TV presenter Jeremy Clarkson, it is this eponymous expression of which certain images convey man and machine versus nature . . .
