Remarks & Notes 
Made up of two (now-retired) Budd RDCs and a GP38-2 on the tail end for good measure, the northbound ARR Hurricane Turn is in the hole at Canyon siding on a beautiful summer afternoon. Due to a serious heat kink discovered north of here by the preceding Denali Star, we'd be stuck at Canyon for nearly 4 hours until the track was repaired and the southbound Fairbanks-Anchorage express (which was being held on the other side of the kink) got by. Everyone was in good spirits during the delay, and had several hours to climb off the train and explore this otherwise remote, inaccessible area. Only in Alaska!!
