Remarks & Notes 
Mixed Train 2009! The first mixed train to run on the ARR in over three decades is highballing north at track speed rolling through the junction at NSS Matanuska (MP 151.4 on the ARR mainline). Three SD70MACs lead a 2300 ft train consisting of 13 coaches (with 120 paying passengers), 7 COFC flats, and 10 loaded tank cars of diesel fuel. The ARR is exercising an FRA waiver to run mixed trains allowing it to consolidate some traffic and operate as efficiently and cost effectively as possible. The ARR is always an innovator and not afraid to look to the past for solutions to problems in the present.
