There was a group of 11 of us 8 adults & 3 kids who cruised here late September. Agings from 4-60. Booking through the ship was very expensive. So before we left we did some research and found out we were going to be the only ship in port that day. Which was perfect. On the day of arrival we got off the boat first thing and got our tickets for the afternoon train ride. It was a very short walk to the office but saved us about $200CAD for all 11 of us compared to the ship prices. We lucked out the weather was perfect for late September. There are 2 people to a bench. The train ended up being very full so you could end up sitting with a stranger. The train ride was so much fun for all. You will ride in a vintage passenger coach on the original route to the White Pass Summit, passing Bridal Veil Falls, Inspiration Point and Dead Horse Gulch. Amazing views of the mountains, glaciers, waterfalls, tunnels, trestles and historic sites. You can get some amazing pictures if you step outside on to the back or front of your car or you can sit back and relax inside by the wood stove.

This was what I was looking forward to on my cruise through Alaska! I was not disappointed in this trip. Just loved the whole journey and the scenery. The history was fascinating too! Unfortunately a few people spoilt it by hogging the back section of the train. We managed to get a few photographs. This is a must do excursion.

Fantastic views, if you can see them. In our case, the money-shot views were mostly on the other side of the train. Apparently, this isn't a problem if you take the train form the round-trip ride. We got off in Fraser for a bus tour. And, while passengers were encouraged to ride outside on the platform for a few minutes (and admonished to be considerate to others), our train had a couple inconsiderate [offensive terms omitted] completely oblivious to everyone else.

GEt seated and be sure you have a battery pack to run your phone camera for video and pictures. The train cars are historic and rock along the narrow gauge railroad through the most beautiful landscape you could hope to see on a single trip. Tormented Valley into the Tongass National Forest -- The mountain passes - trestles and so much more. Pay close attention looking out the windows. Don't get distracted by condersation - don't waste this time. Set your eyes on the wondrous sights to be seen! Take all the pictures you take. Upon editing and looking back you will not regret that you did! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: Wish I could ride the White Pass and Yukon Route once again. Such a long way from Dallas!
