Remarks & Notes 
Without a doubt the single most famous point on the Alaska Railroad, the Hurricane Gulch Bridge was completed in 1921. The span is 918 feet long and 296 feet above its namesake creek. The twin RDCs of the ARR's famous Hurricane Turn have reached the north end of the their 57 mile journey from Talkeetna and will soon reverse directions to trundle home. The foliage peaks early on the flanks of the Alaska Range and the riders this day were treated to a veritable riot of color.
