Alaska is home to one of the last "flag stop" trains in North America. That means you can stand by the tracks with your thumb out and they'll pick you up, or you can wave a flag out the window and they'll drop you off wherever you want.
Over the course of the production we haven't just been interviewing scientists. Business owners, train conductors, and what we might call just ordinary citizens, have all been included in the film. One of the most unique perspectives we've gotten has come from those who farm the Last Frontier. Alaskan farmers have a unique perspective on just about everything, but one insight we were most interested in was how weather is affecting farming in the state. Not all of which is negative, later winters and earlier summers mean longer growing seasons.
