In a glorious cacophony of rod clank, exhaust, turbo whine and hooter whistle, augmented by a canopy of cinders and the acrid smell of bituminous coal smoke, valve oil, steam and wet railroad cross ties--N&W 1218 marches by the Appalachian Power plant at Glen Lyn, VA en route to Bluefield. No doubt she rolled this way a few times when she worked manifests and other freights for the Norfolk & Western. For just a moment, time is rolled back to the thrill and grandeur of N&W "Precision Transportation."
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"!)
