Pictured above is ARR RS-1 numbers 1001 and 1000. Photographer Ken Reuben writes, "I rode the ARR in April 1945 from Whittier to Anchorage. We were on a three day pass and due back on a Saturday. There was no train to Whittier on Saturdays, but a special was coming down with girls for a dance. Unfortunately, F.D.R. died the day before and the dance was cancelled. So we were AWOL, didn't get back till Monday." Whittier, Alaska, 1944-45
