Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, this narrow gauge railroad is an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark. Experience the breathtaking panorama of mountains, glaciers, trestles & tunnels from the comfort of vintage train cars...more
This is indeed one of the highlights of Alaska. Reserve months in advance, as soon as you have booked travel arrangements. Great for all ages, but make special arrangements for wheelchairs; seniors with canes who can do a few stairs are fine.
This was a relaxing beautiful train ride. Warm inside, platform outside to stand on for great pictures and fresh air. It did seem like a long time. I was a little bored and sleepy on the way back down. It is about 3 hours long....More
You just can't have a total scenic train ride through the forest , it was some scenic views and to hear what it took to do the railway was interesting , but you are on a train and only have moments to get a pic...More

We arrived at Skagway on a Royal Caribbean ship. The tour was organised through RC shore excursions in advance and the cost for the rail trip was approximately $AU125. A bus took us from the wharf to the train with minimum fuss and walking. Not sure of other lines.
Bought the tickets at the train stop - thought I would get better fare than buying on the ship - turned out to be same fare - so much so the coductor/station manager charged them to the room. If I am not mistaken it was $145... More
