Remarks & Notes 
Winters Last Gasp

Near the very end of March Southcentral Alaska got hit with its last good snow dump of the winter season. Nearly a foot fell in some places and the fresh afternoon snowfall coincided fortuitously with a southbound freight from Anchorage to Whittier. As a bonus one of the ARR's three geeps remaining in their original as delivered 1976 paint job was on the point. Naturally a chase ensued!

Here the train pops through a small snow berm at the little grade crossing beneath the high car detector in Girdwood. And yes, I had to lay in a puddle to capture this image, but I think it was worth it. Do you?
