Remarks & Notes 
You never know what you might find in the woods of Alaska. Normally you're excited to stumble upon a bear or moose (at safe distance of course) but you rarely expect to find an F-unit! Nevertheless, while exploring a dirt road out to Bear Lake near Seward I was startled to find this rusting, truckless frame in the woods behind a residence/B&B. It turns out this unit is the former ARR 1514 purchased new by the ARR in 1953. According to sources on John Combs' wonderful ARR railfan page this unit is somewhat historic as it was the very last F7 unit built by EMD as order number 19066.
