    The Alaskan route for Train Sim is pretty good. Track is accurate. The route looks good. Locomotives are good. Rolling stock fits the route. But a few things were missing that are very important to the route in real life.

    GP40-2

    Along with the GP38-2 the ARR has 15 GP40-2 that are used in freight service and passnger service.

    Passenger Cars

    This is great! I always felt like something was missing from this route, and it was definitely the passenger trains.
