All in a Day's Work

Portraying the various types of work and special challenges that occur along the rails of the Alaska Railroad



Finding the rail: In the summer of 1977, Extra Gang #3 was tasked with relaying Grandview siding with larger rail. The only problem was that the rail had been laid out the previous fall. Even in late May, the snow at Grandview was still very deep off to the side and we had to dig to find the replacement rail.
