John, hot off my camera and I was in town long enough to capture the train in North Pole and working her way back to Fairbanks. I wanted to chase her on the airport branch but had a flight to catch. So from an airport across the west once again and back fresh off crewing Iowa Interstate RR QJ 7081, here are the better ones.
|The F-40 leads the consist in a push configuration.||The entire consist sits at North Pole, ready to head to Fairbanks||After loading all the NRHS passengers, the train backed down to the end of Chapado's siding and then made the high speed run to Fairbanks....okay not...10MPH track.||Working her way along the Old Richardson Highway. The fall colors were at their best....and still on the trees!|
|The Geeps pushing on the rear end.||The colors just couldn't get any better than this.||Right around the curve at branch mile marker 12.||This zoom gives an idea on the track and reason for the speed.|
|A crossing along the Old Richardson Highway||Coming out of the trees and along the Old Rich.||No 3003 brings up the rear and leans a little into the leisure run.|
Thanks a million to Art Chase for providing these photos!
