Remarks & Notes 
Big Time Coal! 10 units - count 'em - curl north with 113 empty coal hoppers along the icy shores of Turnagain Arm beneath the snowy peaks of the Chugach Mountains. This is by far the largest unit train ever run by the ARR. It is, in fact, 1 normal trains. Two days prior day high winds had shut down dumping operations in Seward with one train only half empty. The road crew turned out with 4 units and half the train. Meanwhile, the following day the other consist (ARR has two 75 car unit coal trains cycling around the clock) showed up. It was dumped successfully and doubled up with the other half still in Seward and came north to Anchorage as a monster train stretching 7000 ft in length that you see before you!
