Decorative sign with the logo for the Alaska Railroad, established in 1914.
Sometimes a forgotten carrier because of location, the Alaska Railroad (ARR) today is a Class II, Regional operation with nearly 400 miles of track. Its lines are essentially a single mainline stretching from Seward in the south to Fairbanks in the north. Since its beginnings in the early 1900’s the railroad has done much to bring prosperity and a transportation need to a region and state that lacks infrastructure because of topography. While it may not seem likely the Alaska Railroad does have a lot of freight business with wide range of customers part of which is thanks to its two port connections.
