Remarks & Notes 
Snow Fighting - Alaska Style! - The "snow fleet" is climbing slowly up the nearly 2.2% grade enroute to tunnel with Jordan Spreader #7 leading, trailed by two geeps and a depressed center flat car loaded with a CAT. To the left can be seen the south portal of the 310 ft tunnel they exited moments earlier. This little tunnel is the southern most of five in short succession. Immediately at the tunnel's portal is the Placer River bridge, a portion of which is also visible spanning the deep gorge. This is one of the most remote and wildly scenic pieces of the entire Alaska Railroad.
