White Pass & Yukon 95 GE "Shovel Nose" backs out of the Skagway, AK depot area on August 16, 2012 after letting off its passengers at a nearby cruise ship. The 95 is one of three remaining units which have not yet been modernized. It retains its Alco 251A engine. Behind it are two MLW C-14's 101 and 108 with their Alco 251D prime movers. On this day four cruise ships kept the motive power and passenger car roster busy.
