The state of Alaska has an enormous wealth of natural resources and scenic wonders. But to develop this richness and to provide a view of the geographical marvels, the Alaska Railroad was required to overcome some extremely challenging natural obstacles.
Mountain ranges, ice and snow, glaciers and wide, rolling rivers were all part of the terrain that had to be crossed by railroaders who opened up the last frontier. They took it all in stride, and the dedication and "can do" spirit of today's employees reflect the tradition set by those pioneers.

For years, the railroad was the unglamorous and unheralded backbone of Alaska's transportation system. The construction of the oil pipeline began to change this perspective, and today, with Alaska's developing export market, most notably in coal, the railroad is about to enter a new era and once again assume an important role in moving Alaska's freight.

The future of the state and the railroad is extremely promising. The railroad and its employees will be called upon-and I predict will meet-the challenges of the future to assist the orderly growth and development of this great state, America's last frontier.
This book is testimony to the resourcefulness and ability of the Alaksa Railroad's employees.
Frank H. Jones General Manager Alaska Railroad
