Remarks & Notes 
I didn't usually shoot roster shots of locomotives, but this particularly colorful industrial unit was spotted at Corbin in 1984, and I thought it deserved at least one frame of film. Subsequent research confirmed this US Steel Baldwin S8 (actually a "cow" in some rare cow-calf Baldwin sets) worked for Oliver Iron Mining. It was later transferred to the Rouchleau Locomotive Shop, as it clearly reads on the hood. I wasn't sure why it was at Corbin, but I knew these units generally were off limits for photography once they were working their assignments for US Steel.

Do you ever get the feeling as a model railroader, that you just might be creating something not "prototypical?" Same here.

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"!)
