Troop train waiting to cross over to main line. Diesel Shop - Elmendorf.
Photographer Gene Adoline was an enlisted man in the Army at Ft. Richardson
in 1954. Of his photograph, he recalls, "USAR S-2 ALCO, pulling Troop
Train out of Elmendorf Air Force Base. We never backed a Troop Train
into the Air Force Base. We used the S-2's on one end to assure that
we did not have any crossing accidents. When on the USAF base, the
train was handled by the Army Railroad."
