    Default Do we have anyone from Anchorage in the building?

    Hi guys,
    Do we have anybody who currently lives/formerly lived in Anchorage Alaska on NsN? I am trying to track down and get photos of TBCX 90001, a specific and very special tank car that has apparently been in the city of Anchorage for years.

    Last time it was seen was in 2015 and I've got a feeling it's still there, where ever there is...
    Any help would be much appreciated

    What's so special about this tank car? My nephew lives in Anchorage, I could check with him. Any tips on where to look?

    In a sentence it was the fuel car for the Peacekeeper rail Garrison, essentially a missile silo on rails. Honesty I have no clue where it is now. I thought it had been scrapped along with the rest of cars that were sent to alaska but according to that photo it's still kicking as of 2015

    Hey, good luck. All pics in the Anchorage album have the same date (the date they were uploaded) so it could be very old, and same location, possibly the geographic center of Anchorage although it is near the ARR yard. Google Earth has detailed aerials from 2014; I scrolled around for a while and didn't find a spur in a parking lot with trees in the background. The tower could be yard lights.
