ARR 1508 is seen leading an early cruise train into Whittier on a Sunday in June of 1983. Note the use of an old troop boxcar for the end of train. The passenger unloading area has since been upgraded

Both the Cunard Princess and the Alaskan ferry EL Bartlett were in the harbor on that day

The 1508 ran around its train and departed back for Anchorage as ARR 1530 north.

This was the dawn of the cruise ship industry in Alaska

Wow, about the only thing that looks the same today is the Buckner building, and the weather. Very interesting pics. Thanks!
