Bumble-Bee (livery)

Bumble-Bee is an informal term describing a New Zealand railway locomotive livery (resulting from the combination of black and yellow in the colour scheme) found in common usage amongst the railfan community.

The livery, first introduced in 2001 to promote level crossing safety, was initially trialled on Tranz Rail locomotive DC 4323 (photo), and over time was applied to numerous other locomotive classes up until the time that Toll introduced its own livery.
