Zombies continued to cannibalize Southcentral Alaska over the weekend, according to eyewitnesses to a train hijacking in downtown Anchorage.

Replacement NFL referees banished from Seattle and gnomes last seen alive near Hood River, Ore., were said to turn away from the aggressive herd of humans grazing between Platinum Jaxx and Rumrunners, sidetracked by the sound of a train whistle coming from the nearby Ship Creek district. Onlookers thought the living undead were destined for the port when a ripe hippy stepped out from behind an Alaska Railroad locomotive bound for the Turnagain Arm hamlet of Girdwood.

Even flesh eaters appreciate fresh powder, fine dining and a night of drunken revelry in woods of the northernmost rainforest in North America, it would appear.

Hotel Alyeska, the largest ski resort in the state, hosted the third annual Zombie Train to Girdwood on Saturday. From the looks of these photos, it was a neck slashing success.
