Where Trains Fly and Eagles Soar: Seward and Whittier Subdivisions on the Alaska Railroad (45 minutes)
A fascinating look at operations on the Seward and Whittier Subdivisions during the summer of 1994. A 3-day tour of the lines between Anchorage, Whittier and Seward, trackage that runs past the incredibly scenic vistas of Turnagain Arm and Kenai Fjords National Park. The route from Seward to Portage takes the trains over the crest of Kenai at 1,060 feet, up 3 percent grades, and through 5 tunnels!
Traffic on the Whittier and Seward Subs consists of Anchorage-to-Seward passenger trains; the Whittier Shuttle carrying passengers, cars, and trucks; unit coal trains; and freights that serve the rail barges. These are led by GM diesels including GP35s and GP38s, GP40s and GP49s, plus a few surprises such as an F7-B and a Budd RDC. You’ll also see many cabooses at the ends of these trains.
