MWR - railfanning the Mountain West!

Mountain West Rail in Alaska
Riding the Denali Star from
Anchorage to Denali Park Station
On a sunny afternoon, the northbound Denali Star skirts the edge of Denali National Park north of Cantwell.
A caribou stops to look at a bus load of Denali Park visitors.
This is Mount McKinley in the late afternoon sun as viewed from inside Denali Nat'l Park.  The "peak" of clouds below McKinley is equal in height to Mount Rainier south of Seattle.

A Seward bound passenger train passes over a low trestle at Moose Pass, Alaska.  The train will return to Anchorage the same evening.

Alaska Railroad 2801 and five other four axle units are ready to depart with an empty coal train from Seward, Alaska.
