Remarks & Notes 
Every year the city of Anchorage hosts a two week long celebration called Fur Rendezvous...or Rondy as it's known. This is a winter carnival and the city's biggest celebration of the year. The first weekend always features fireworks down near the mouth of Ship Creek that draw a large crowd. The location of the launch necessitates shutting down rail operations at the south end of the ARR's main classification yard and moving all haz-mat cars out of the "fall out" area. Since nothing was moving at the south end it was a perfect time for an impromptu photo shoot with a string of SD70MACs just in from a freight run. This was my first attempt ever shooting fireworks, what do you think? Note: the photographer is a railroad employee with permission to be on the property and was wearing all required PPE while taking this photograph.

Sparks fly over the railroads from celebration fireworks, maintenance and repair "sparks", locomotive exhaust fireworks, and nature's light show.
