July 15, 1998 letter from Gov. Bill Sheffield

Dear Friend of the Alaska Railroad:

Many thanks for joining us today to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the completion of the Alaska Railroad. On behalf of the Board of Directors and our employees, I hope you will feel the same pride we have for this special and vital Alaska institution.

The Alaska Railroad is dedicated to service to Alaska communities and businesses. We do our best to run the safest, most efficient, customer-oriented railroad in North America. We're self-supporting through our revenues and we're always mindful that many of our customers are also part of the line.

It's an historic day, a great day for the Railroad and a great day for the State of Alaska. Thanks for joining us and thanks for your support.

Gov. Bill Sheffield

President and CEO
