Remarks & Notes 
A Seward-bound passenger train skirts the Turnagain Arm south of Anchorage on a picture perfect summer afternoon in Alaska. Forty eight years ago today on March 27, 1964, the Good Friday Earthquake occurred between Anchorage and Valdez, Alaska with a magnitude of 9.2 making it the second strongest earthquake of recorded history. Some of the major impacts are still visible near Girdwood, AK today and portions of the Seward Highway seen in the background here (which parallels much of the Alaska Railroad to Seward) sank as much as 8 feet and had to be reconstructed to be higher than the new high tide mark.
