Here are a couple images I hope you'll enjoy. I arrived in
Anchorage on the evening of June 5, 2013. Upon arrival I immediately drove
down the Seward Highway in hopes of catching the northbound Glacier Discovery.
The result speaks for itself. Wow, I thought, at least I got one good shot on the trip. Little did I know what I was in for over the next few days.
On Monday June 10, 2013 I drove down from Anchorage to recapture my shot from the 1986 at Bear Valley. On the way, at Bird, there was a work train, so I stopped, took a few pictures and chatted for a few minutes with the crew. They were on their way to Indian to meet the southbound passenger trains. These Bird shots were bookends of an absolutely perfect trip.
While the siding has been renamed since I left Alaska, this location will always be Bird for me.
