Choo choo. #modeltrain display at Norfolk Southern. #trains #transportation #model #hobbies YPT Austin was instrumental in supporting the Greenroads Boot Camp hosted by CTRMA in Austin.  Increase your sustainability street cred, and learn more about Greenroads International, one of our Silver Sponsors! #transportation #sustainability #green #transit #engineering #thankful The #Alaska #Railroad’s main line stretches 470 miles from Seward to #Fairbanks, #connecting communities all along Southcentral and Interior Alaska. The main line was completed in 1923 after 9 years of construction; President Warren G. Harding traveled to Alaska for the occasion and personally drove in the Golden Spike to finish the job. In 1943, the Railroad completed a 12-mile spur to the tiny port town of Whittier. In total, the Alaska Railroad provides regularly scheduled passenger service along 482 miles of track – an expanse greater than the distance between #Boston and #Washington, D.C. #friday #trains #transportation Check this amazing #sunset shot, shared by our equally amazing Director of Chapter Development @wbybanana.
