Remarks & Notes 
It was a splendid cold Sunday with bluebird skies and crisp white snow abounding. An empty intermodal (bare table) train was called for a date with the Northland Services barge at the ARR's southernmost terminal in Seward. So, a quick call to my friend Frank Keller and we decided to go for it. What a chase...114 miles from Anchorage to the end of the line with not a cloud in site. Two clean SD70s led the train, which albeit was not very photogenic consisting of one tank car and 60 flats (most of which were empty) for a total of 2660 tons and 4852 ft. Here the train is seen marching up the short but steep 2.07% climb to Divide Summit, about to duck under the highway and then drop down the last 10 miles to the docks at Seward.
