A question on another website prompted me to do some research on the Alaska Railroad commuter rail project. Here is some information in case those who were curious on it.

The route will run from Wasilla to Girdwood if the documents are correct. 80 miles seems a bit much for a start system but I guess we'll have to wait and see when more information is available on ARR's website
