Remarks & Notes 
An afternoon yard job is seen switching on the weedy 70 lb rail of the ARR's APU spur in downtown Anchorage. This obscure industrial lead is rarely photographed, but offers the lucky individual a chance to view a more traditional aspect of single car railroading the contrasts greatly with the common image of the ARR as a modern carrier specializing in unit trains and first class passenger service. The old wooden "close clearance" sign and abandoned industrial sidings harken back to an earlier era on the ARR.
