WP&Y 103 leaves Skagway, AK on August 17, 2012.

White Pass & Yukon MLW DL535E 103 with 110 and 104 trailing, pass through Skagway enroute from a cruise ship to the main line and the climb up White Pass on August 17, 2012. To the left, a morning excursion is returning to the Skagway depot. When multiple excursions are arriving and departing, this area turns into narrow gauge Alco (MLW) land, as well as "shovel nose" GE land with traffic everywhere. On August 16, with four cruise ships docked (2 Princess, 1 Holland-American, and 1 Disney), trains seemed to be everywhere at peak arrival and departure times.
