    Finally got far enough into uploading my Alaska trip pictures to have a few railroad-related ones to share. There will be more. Especially when I get to the White Pass & Yukon Route on Day 7.

    Here is the old train station at Seward, AK:

    A broomhandle used as a switch stand lever. I wonder if they also use the broom to dust the snow off the switch gear?

    Some old boxcars sitting trackside, trucks removed, as storage space, I presume.

    Another few shots. On our way back from Seward to Anchorage, I had the enormous luck to be in the passenger seat as a Southbound coal train approached. Please forgive the lack of sharpness, we were traveling at almost 60mph in the opposite direction.

    Oh, and a couple of bridges somewhere along the way.

    How about an aggregate loader?

    Plenty of non-train related photos in my Flickr set: http://flic.kr/s/aHsjH8ZPyg

    More to come

    Wow, two stunning scenery contributions to the thread... Twindad - Alaska... cool!, and DrifterNL - that mountain range in your first shot is unbelievable. Almost looks like a painted backdrop.

    Thanks, Paul. I agree on Drifter's shot. Amazing scenery with some great foreground as well. Those grain hoppers look right at home there.

    Nice score with the two old BNSF paint schemes, Sim! And I LOVE that CSX coming out of the tunnel.

    GIMP's "Heal Selection" or Photoshop's "Content Aware Fill" (or whatever it's called) might be somewhat helpful here

    Finally made it to Skagway. I'll probably do a whole thread just on the WP&YR, but here are a couple of shots for general consumption.

    The windvane at the Iditarod Park in Seward.

    Great pictures from what I know was a great trip TD. I'd like to get up there someday. I saw those narrow gauge diesels being painted at CECCO in Tacoma WA before I moved to Oregon. Thanks for sharing.

    And I caught a few other trains, too... back in Lexington

    I tried to catch some other interesting cars on those trains, but my technique was horrible and they all came out bad. Better luck next time.

    There's a video coming soon. I'll add it when it's uploaded.

    Here's the video. It's all NS property, but there's pool power from UP, CSX and BNSF in there...

    TD I look forward to your (hopefully) future thread on the WP&YR. I had the chance to ride it when I was in the Yukon on a training exercise over 15 years ago. And it was featured on a kids show called "mighty machines".

    Here's a shot I got with my phone in Waterdown:
