Alaska has a special relationship with the Alaska Railroad. Part of that relationship is the many ways that the Alaska Railroad Corporation supports the Engine 557 Restoration Company and other Alaskan orgainzations. On Thursday, July 27, we had a two-hour visit by ARRC President and CEO, Bill O'Leary, marketers Meghan, Sasha McGinn, and Heather Dudick, and Vice President Marketing & Customer Service Dale Wade. They took the full tour of the shop and all were highly complementary. We appreciate them dedicating half of their day to the visit and the drive from Anchorage to Wasilla.

July was a very productive month for the Alaska Railroad 557 restoration crew and it finished off with $12,500 in corporate and foundation grants. For details, see the latest status report at http://www.557.alaskarails.org/restore/ ... index.html.

The newest 557 status report has just been published at http://www.557.alaskarails.org/restore/ ... index.html.

Included are a couple of photos provided by Joe Alutius, now of Eagle River, Alaska, shown here firing an S160 at Ft. Eustis. He was part of the engine crew on the next-to-last S160 steam operation there.
