Anchorage was a railroad town, unlike other Alaskan towns which were mining camps.

That's so stupid because everyone knows Alaska has no railroads.

I did just write Consumer Web as well as several years back. Reitterated my Alaskan Dream for the homeless and low income secters.

I want a frontier village 1 bedroom townhouse with the bottom level as a starter shop for each. 1st business start up loan that will give them 3 year start up revenue to build off of

Allowing the along the peir areas permits the homeless import and trades men from all over the owrld a less expensive place to shop for their supplies and provisions as they live on the boats.

Wholesaler, flowershop, bait and tackle and harness and jerky shops, everything can be in it.

Their is a homeless woman that was once a trading post ALaskan NAtive village, When she was the MAyor her dream was to stop all checks and housing and supplies and provisons form the army and move her whole village in Anchorage incorporating with current day society, the WHOEL village is homelss at Beans cafe now and Brother Francis SHelter.

ALso a beautiful Calfiornia Cherakee/White hybrid. He is being abused by the clinkets and upicks. A SOLO Halfling Pagan/Shaman being challenged by 2 whole indian nations single handed Go Bruno go, run little brother fly away, you will find others like you someday, All my love Jaimie

For their party, they could stage a dog sled and skioffs, for all nations that hid in Alska to train for their Olympics in their own nation, dress like them and mock them for aborting contracts and abandoning financial assistence to the state any longer.

Reality TV mockery of other nations misconduct in their own back yard. Thats fun smoke a little woowoo and get on a costume and do your hair and talk in a accent and have fun mocking people.

Typo errors are horrid, I was a international corporate supervisor before my main artery clapsed and it had to be removed, but...

Only thing they do for fun now is go to bars, they rent a conference room to have mock rollar drome sets, with alcohol and pay etc for a skater to lap dance.

Try making your own recycling company. Cut that payoff to California and cash in on your own. City of MAdison was a 3 man and a truck pick up and got a small business loan and became the whole junkyard and recycling center, they make over several million a month on yoru garbage, old jewelry gets melted down, sheet metal crafts, boards resanded for resale everything. GO SERVICE HIGH 87 and 86 get them jedi nights.

Reopen all mines, The dry out effect is long over, they shut them down becasue back in those days they did not believe foundations sturdy for further dig or crossing the tunnels.

The sides of the walls in all the mountains have not been tapped into at all, only where they blew a tunnel.

Still alot in those mines and lakes and rivers. Grab a few nuggets and drop them where you want to spot a claim for $25.

I siad my father made $250,000 in his first 2 months. But he had a water mine and was US NAVY so he had the equiptment knowledge he needed and training in all the gear to do this FAST

Alaska has no railroads because the steel rails would shrink from the cold and they'd be warped by earthquakes. There is no need for a railroad to begin with since there are no big cities in Alaska.

I road the train when I lived in Alaska, a tour attraction has the day trips. One of the attractions is a mining Ghost town. YES they had trains. It is Global imports across states to get the cargo to another region for ship lines, or truck lines. Etc

Good Trip, I made that trip in 1980 the seating made you feel like the posh posh in comparison to Airport first class.

Alaska doesn't have trains or highways or airports or seaports or electricity or internet or indoor plumbing. Nobody even lives there except a few eskimos.
