Santa loves his new SD70MAC

This was the Picture of the Week for the week of December 20, 2004.

As the population of the world continues to increase dramatically, it should come as no surprise to find Santa has chosen an SD70MAC over a sleigh to deliver the tons of toys from the North Pole to all the good girls and boys. Eight tiny reindeer are just no match for a 16-cylinder 4,000 HP work horse with WhisperCab and heated crew area. "Is this an awesome machine or what!" Santa hoghead was heard to exclaim as he highballed it down the track.

Happy holidays from John's Alaska Railroad Web Page! I hope Santa brings you much happiness and good health for 2005 and beyond. -- JC
