The Series

Railroad Alaska follows a hard-core crew of railroaders as they battle the elements to keep the trains rolling.  These rail crews wage a never-ending battle against mother-nature braving bone chilling temperatures to clear avalanches and fix earthquake damage ensuring the trains of Alaska’s vital artery keep running.

The railroad is the lifeline of Alaska delivering crucial supplies to the hearty homesteaders that call this unspoiled, and unforgiving, countryside home.  This railroad operates the last remaining flag stop service in the country to provide homesteaders with their only link to the outside world.  In the merciless wilderness of Alaska failure is never an option.  For the off-grid homesteaders, if the trains stop running it could mean the difference between life and death.
