Tom Koole's Plamer Layout Diagram
Tom Koole says, "This is my N-scale layout that I started while living in Eagle River. The size was kept under 4x8 (3.6x7.6) as it was easy to move when Uncle Sam said it was time to go. It is about 3/4 complete and covers the Palmer Branch from the proposed Birchwood Yard (1980s) thru Palmer and on to the proposed (1930s) addition from Palmer to the coalfields of the Mat-Su Valley." 9/6/98

Some guy from Ohio flew all the way to Alaska just to take a photo of the last days of Burrow crane ARR 40. He told his wife they were going on a canoe trip!  He did not see the local switchers in the background (GP-30s 2000 and 2504). Guess its another Alaska trip next year. The same guy climbed on top of the film prop from Runaway Train to take a photo of his favorite engine.
