We took a 4 hour ride by rail from Talkeetna to Anchorage. The views were awesome and quite easy to see through our glass dome windows. The conductor described each area of our travel; there were many picturesque moments. We also purchased dinner. It was not the best, but a nice experience.

Flush toilets when coming off a long train ride. Vacant at 8:30 pm when Denali to Anchorage train pulled in. Otherwise plain block building, no special art or displays that I saw. Definitely go up the hill to The Bridge restaurant. Pricey but very worth it.

Nice place to wait for a train. Historical markers/murals are interesting. The gift shop with lots of great memorabilia. Seating is not as good as I would have liked.

This was free and easy to walk to. Took pictures. Like watching the trains. You can also walk to the ulu place and watch fishermen fish for salmon.

If you enjoy walking take time to walk the bike path, or for a good bike ride hire a bike and travel the paths around town. Saw moose with calf, eagles, deer and fantastic views.
