Remarks & Notes 
Looking down from the sidwalk of the C Street Bridge as an ARR yard job switches out cars at the warehouse. The building on the left houses the ARR's stores department and they still regularly ship and receive company material by rail. Track components (spikes, anchors, etc.) come up by barge in foreign line boxcars while various other company material is shuttled around the system on flats, gons, or in boxcars. Beyond the train can be seen the bustling port of Anchorage and then the blue waters of cook inlet. On the horizon is the 4396 ft peak of Mt. Susitna, known locally as the "Sleeping Lady" for the mountain's resemblance to a woman in repose on her back. To the right is the abandoned warehouse, which is one of the oldest structures in the Anchorage yard complex and whose fate is uncertain.
