Remarks & Notes 
This is odd looking little mixed train is used for student training out on the isolated and little used Ft. Richardson classification yard. The twin geeps are used to practice switching with newly hired brakeman, and the dome coach is used as fancy taxi to and from the isolated trackage. The lone flat car carries an emergency response command center container that is outfitted with refrigerators and a microwave and tables and other conveniences to provide a break room and lunch area for the trainers and students. The little train is seen pulling off the Ft. Richardson lead and on to the ARR mainline just north of CP 1198 on Elmendorf Air Force Base which abuts Ft. Rich.
