What a great website! I cannot believe the amount of information you have on your website. I plan on modeling portions of the Alaska Railroad in N scale. Thank you so much for sharing your obsession with us!

Hey John-

I just wanted to let you know that I've gotten more info off of your site then through the AK state archives and the AK railroad itself. I'm doing some research for work, and your site has been invaluable.

Thanks,
Chris

John, It has been a while and I see a great deal of progress and useful information. I have some information about the ARR "Clinic Car" including a B&W of one of 3 in AuRoRa colors.(1947-1953). Not in the Prince 2 Vol work. Only reference I found was in an Alaska Nurses Assn 1967 pamphlet.
The 2 FP-7's on Verde Canyon RR have replacement nose doors with 2nd headlight. Winterization hatches had to be removed at Skull Valley, as they would have been ripped off. The 2 Verde Canyon troop kitchen were BN/CB&Q. The UP 4800 diner at the AZRR Museum in Chandler, arrived in full ARR colors with simple strikeout and former owner reporting marks. ARR 87-88-89 retained the litter loading doors unlike the other conversions.
Retired from the Corps in 1994, and as a Senior Healthcare Internal Auditor 3 years ago. Have 2 grandchildren in Akron. Dan

Just wanted to let you know, Mr. Combs, "Weaver E." Franklin who was the last living engineer of AKRR No.557 lost his life on Thurday. I know you have his contributions on here and not sure if you had the pleasure of meeting him. If you, or anyone else has pictures or stories to share, he work with the AKRR for over four decades.

Hi John, just got back from 10 days in Alaska. Rode the train from Anchorage to Seward and then all the way up to Fairbanks. Fantastic journey! Keep up the good work you do here. Thanks ;)
