Remarks & Notes 
There are more than just polar bears that should be placed on the endangered species list in Alaska. Ironically the 40 ft. mill gon coupled behind the locomotive is the oldest piece of equipment in this string (built for the D&RGW in 1943) but the only one that will likely survive beyond 2009 (at least here in Alaska). The MP15s are slated for sale by the end of this year and all cabooses are being removed from the roster. These four were recently pulled from work train service, and after having their logos painted over and lettering removed will be offered to the highest bidder. The MP15 is shunting them about the Anchorage rail yard just in front of the yard office.
