The "Beep" (also referred to as the SWBLW) is a one-of-a-kind switcher locomotive built in 1970 by the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway at its Cleburne, Texas workshops. Technically a rebuild, the Beep (a portmanteau of "Baldwin Geep," whose official designation was derived from "SWitcher, Baldwin Locomotive Works") originally entered service on the Santa Fe as a Baldwin Model VO-1000. Following close on the heels of its highly-successful CF7 capital rebuilding program, the company hoped to determine whether or not remanufacturing its aging, non-EMD end cab switchers by fitting them with new EMD prime movers was an economically viable proposition.

A generic application protocol kernel for connection-oriented, asynchronous interactions. Its advantages over HTTP are threefold – firstly,. it is truly peer-to-peer (with HTTP, the client MUST initiate the request, which causes major problems if the server needs to communicate with the client asynchronously), secondly it provides multiple channels over the same connection (HTTP does not), and thirdly it allows higher level "profiles" to define what flows over a channel (HTTP defines the methods (GET, POST, etc.).  BEEP was standardized by the IETF Working Group as RFC 3080. A mapping from BEEP to TCP has also been standardized (RFC 3081). See Also see the BEEPCORE site at
