Alaska Railroad

In June of 2004 I spent 10 days in Alaska. Part of that time was spent riding and chasing the Alaska Railroad Denali Star, Coastal Classic and Glacier Discovery trains. These are pictures of the Alaska Railroad equipment I photographed on the rails between Seward, Whittier, Anchorage and Fairbanks.
