Remarks & Notes 
Running just a couple of minutes off the advertised, the twin SD70MACs emit a puff of smoke as they clip up the gentle .3% grade at the posted track speed of 60 MPH. Just under 10 miles outside of their destination at Anchorage the passengers aboard are enjoying some more stunning Alaskan scenery on this glorious Friday evening. Deep on confines of Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson this area is little photographed which is truly a shame. In the foreground is a tangle of Tufted Vetch, which is beautiful to look at and photograph but is a non-native invasive species. In the distance rise the high peaks of the Chugach Mountains. Note: the photographer is a railroad employee with permission to be on the property and was wearing all required PPE while taking this photograph.
