Fueled by freight.

Fueled by Freight

Hauling 4.9 million tons of freight accounted for 90 percent of the Alaska Railroad Corp.'s 1989 revenues; the other 10 percent represents passenger service and real estate transactions that include permits and leases of railroad properties. From $44.9 million in 1988 to $48.3 million in 1989, freight revenues rose 7 percent. Shipments of petroleum products and gravel increased, as did local freight and interline rail cars originating in the Lower 48 or Canada.
