Thank you!! Anxious to meander around your website. Haven't checked the history part yet, but was married to Robert W Davison ... He worked for ARR for over 30 years.

I worked a summer in Mt Mc Kinley as a baggage man and my dad was the ticket agent. Great memories from the ARR. Remember hopping the rails,not allowed from Healy to the park and catching another back a few times. Not sure wh, because we could ride free on the Pass train. Lived in Whittier Healy, Park, Anchorage and Fairbanks. Been in the boxcars, engines, remember the 3015 when she was new. even got to drive her one as a kid. Still remember a coal heated pass car out of whittier and riding the gascars from Whittier to Anchorage... Lots of stories. Catching a fish without getting the hook wet of the ARR dock in Whittier. ect Now I live in Honduras. Not sure what sin this old alaskan polar bear did to be banished to the tropics of Honduras. But now we plant churches and care for 20+ abused orphans in our home. Long way from Alaska but ever close in my heart. Considering building another ride on train for the kids around the orphanage Think the theme should be ARR... What do you think?

Just finished my first perusal of John's wonderful site. WOW! Always wondered about the ARR. Now have an HO scale F-7 and caboose in Modern Scheme, plus GP-35 in older colors. Wonder where this will end up. Thanks, John, for your efforts and those who are now departed. Could not have a finer memorial than this... :o

John: Enjoy greatly seeing the industries and freight cars of ARR in lieu of the typical trackside shots of only locomotives. How about a Morning Sun Book......Trackside along The Alaska Railroad! So much great information I'd like to have in my library!
