Remarks & Notes 
The ARR's annual Colony Christmas train has arrived at its destination, the historic downtown Palmer depot which now serves as a community center and in which is set up the annual holiday market and fair. The train carried about 400 passengers from downtown Anchorage to this quaint little farming town nestled in a spectacular valley between the convergence of the Chugach Range and the Talkeetna Mountains. This is the one and only train that traverses the wavy 70 lb rail here at the outer reaches of this branch line.
