yellow diamondPicture of the Week: Along the Glenn Highway - 4/24/17
yellow diamond20th Anniversary Email Lottery: Twenty years ago I founded this web site with a simple mission in mind: to bring honor to and educate the public about the Alaska Railroad and to help others find related resources. Two decades later, I am still going strong with that same basic intent. To celebrate twenty truly amazing years I am holding an email lottery. If you do not receive a confirmation within 48 hours then call me at 937-623-3725 and leave a message. - 4/17/17
yellow diamondRosters: Alexander Gudschinsky and Andrew Packee report that GE 80 tonner #1650 is in the Fairbanks Yard. Apparently, it was purchased through GovPlanet.com for $10,500. Matt Leistico shared Clear Air Force Station's coal fired central heat and power plant shut down last year. The station was connected to public power and a new fuel oil steam plant was constructed. One of the engines was shipped over to Eielson and the other 45 ton switch engine was to be retained at Clear until further notice. Does anyone else have additional information? - 4/17/17
