train ride other than skagway

are there any of the ports where you can do a train ride like you can out of skagway - just for a day visit from one of the cruise ports. (I don't want to do the long train into Danali - this is primarily a question for an excursion to do at the cruise ports).

my question is such b/c we are contemplating which port to do - either Skagway or Sitka. There is hte train ride that my father-in-law would be interseted in doing out of Skagway - but i've had a couple of recommendates on TA that SItka may be a better port of call instead of Skagway.

... such hard decisions. :) Thanks in advance for any help!

I'm not sure which itineraries you're looking at, but there are also trains between Seward to Anchroage and Whittier to Anchorage. Both of which are reported to be scenic. Of course, these would be pre or post cruise rather than a port stop, but might be worth considering if you're starting or ending your cruise in Seward or Whittier.
