Had a great day travelling the Hurricane Turn Train today.
One of the coolest things about this train ride is that it is also a whistle stop train. We made many stops along the way. One of these stops were to an older fella that lived right along the tracks, the train stopped, unloaded a number of boxes, talked with the guy for a minute, and then the train took off up the rail. Coo stuff!
The whole ride was very relaxing, and we were able to move about the train just about anywhere we wanted. There were only about 20 people on the whole train. Most boarded in Anchorage, four, including us, boarded in Wasilla, and a hand full others got on in Talkeetna.
I took loads of photos, around 800 or so, but most of them are taken while we were moving and also through the train’s windows. Some turned out ok, others didn’t.
