Remarks & Notes 
"Please, sir, get back on the train!" The conductor appears to be quite agitated with the guy in the yellow shirt, who is determined to test the siding's clearance limits in an effort to get the shot of the century. This is the Blue Mountain & Reading's 1986 railfan weekend, and the line's newest motive power acquisition, Reading T-1 4-8-4 2102, is powering a southbound train past a northbound (possibly lead by a pair of PRR-painted E8's) through Leesport. This was quite a big event, as evidenced by two trains that appear to be quite well-patronized, as well as a crowd of photographers in the right distance. In the far right distance are several CF7's which the BM&R bought from the Santa Fe and brokered to various shortlines.

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"!)
