Remarks & Notes 
Looking north on the ARR mainline the new DMU can be seen throttling up as it crests a small rise as it returns to the Spencer "Whistle Stop" to pick up passengers who have been enjoying a stunning later summer afternoon hiking to Spencer Glacier or enjoying a picnic on the shore of the glacial lake which can only be reached by a journey on the Alaska Railraod. This multi-million dollar conveyance continues a proud tradition of self propelled cars on the ARR from recently retired Budd RDCs to a McKeen car in the railroad's first decades. Be on the lookout for the next issue of Passenger Train Journal for more photos of this new operation in an article by fellow RPN poster Frank Keller.
