Patten Mines Railroad

Patten Mines Railroad is a small narrow gauge railroad

build on a small island off  the panhandle of Alaska. 

It began as a simple railroad serving one mine but has

evolved over the years to include logging and support

for a small fishing village.


The photo to the right is the original Patten Mine #1.


It still produces valuble ore year after year.






Gerald R Ritter Memorial Bridge burned

Left wind fanatics fearing the destruction of the

habitat of the Spotted Grey Owl burned the

Gerald R Ritter Memorial Bridge in a vain 

effort to prevent the destruction of the owl's

natural habitat.
