Aside from work trains and m-o-w equipment, the only train we met was one with military vehicles and other equipment. 


Below, several more views of the about to hide Denali Peak.


Soon we reached Talkeetna.  My baggage was retrieved from the Denali Star train and I was transported to the Talkeetna Section house.  Below right, Conductor Clinton "Buddy" Gray is gesturing to the northbound Denali Star train.  On the left side  of the Denali Star train, Engineer Dana Godfrey does a roll by for the Denali Star train.



Once the Denali Star train was safely past the Talkeetna Section house, the next portion of my day would begin.
