Remarks & Notes 
Snow Fighting - Alaska Style! - The "snow fleet" has arrived with a Jordan Spreader, two geeps, and the ARR's sole depressed center flat car carrying a big Caterpillar excavator. Spencer is not accessible by road so all the ARR's heavy equipment must be transported in by company work train. Here the train is crossing over the glacier fed Placer River in the heart of the Chugach National Forrest. Classic "Spreader 7" leading the way dates from the early 1970s.
