In the far end of the yard a string of support cars was out of reach except with the long lens. When older cars like gons and flats are assigned to MOW or E service they are usually renumbered as evidenced by some of these photos. These 4O ft gons arrived on the Alaska Railroad in 1948.

The mill gon is dedicated to hauling bundles of ties as evidenced by the Center of Tie marks along the top rail. Flat 97874 carries the pile driver attachment for LC107 and a portion of the following flat provides idler space for the overhang of the mast.

All these are interesting loads for the model builder.
