GE 100 and 94 Northbound at Carcross 1977
John Lytle took this nice image of the Northbound train North of Carcross in October 1977. The flat section of the Yukon doesn't need much motive power. Two GE's are enough for the final 2 hours trip before the train reach Whitehorse at 5:45 PM. Boerries Burkhardt Collection.
