Let's highlight another part of the #transportation industry - passenger aviation - that so many of us rely on for business travel and personal adventures. How many #young #professionals do we have in the #aviation sector? #transport #adventure #cloudy☁️ @bwi_airport 🎶Rivers and roads, rivers and roads.

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.
