Remarks & Notes 
Running several hours late after stopping to assist a failed grain train at Elphinstone, P&O Trains Australia's 9071 empty rice train bound for Deniliquin NSW roars out of Big Hill Tunnel behind a collection of 1950's and 60's EMD locos. The train is operated by El Zorro using hired locomotives, many from preservation groups. On this occasion the lash-up consisted of Steamrail Victoria's S313 in traditional Victorian Railways blue & gold, B76 and B80 on hire from Metro Trains Melbourne, and finally Steamrail's T395. The sound echoing out of the tunnel was very dramatic, you can hear it for yourself in the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZgBs4vItIY

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"!)
"Power!!!!"

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