Remarks & Notes 
20320! - That's the height of North America's highest peak - Mt. McKinley - which dominates the horizon and on a clear day can be seen from hundreds of miles away and is in sight for a good portion of the journey along ARR's mainline from Anchorage to Fairbanks. Here we see the nightly freight from Fairbanks to Anchorage charging south at 40 MPH with a moderate sized train of 4344 ft and 6731 trailing tons heavy with jet fuel from Flint Hills Resources in North Pole destined for the Anchorage International Airport.
