Alaska Railroad has hosted a charter Nordic Skiing Association of Anchorage’s Ski Train for the past 40 years and on March 11, the train is seen arriving back at the Anchorage station following the all-day venture to Curry, Alaska - a railroad access-only location. The longest passenger train of the year for Alaska Railroad is seen with SD70MACs 4319 and 4321 on the north end and 4326 on the south end for HEP support. The Anchorage skyline rises over the train as passengers detrain for their trips home. 3/11/17
