Alaska RR

I know this is WAAAAAY outside of NE Indiana, but I caught a new series on the Animal Planet channel that showcased the Alaska RR. I found it interesting in that it showcases a lot of the MofW activities rather than the glamourous cruise trains. I never knew a 105mm howitzer was a MoW tool. :shock:
If you stumble upon it while flipping channels like I did, give it a look.

I"ve seen it. One of the best TV railroad shows I've seen.

I caught it awhile back too and told the DVR to record all the episodes. It's a pretty cool show and shows a lot of different angles of life up there.
