Remarks & Notes 
After a fun chase from Whittier (two-thirds of which was in the rain - but who cares!) we grab our final shot of the morning. Looking down from the Old Seward Hwy overpass the full length of the train is visible as it leaves the shore of Turnagain Arm (which it has been following for nearly 40 miles) and the water level track to dig in to the ruling 1% grade up Potter Hill and into the Anchorage Metropolitan Area where it will arrive at its final destination in just under a dozen miles. The train is a 27 car mixed freight with interchange off the CN's Aqua Train that arrived Whittier the previous evening after a three day sail across the Gulf of Alaska from Prince Rupert, BC. On the point are twin GP40-2s built new for the ARR one each in the original as delivered scheme and the current livery.
