Enquiry the train from Anchorge to Fairbanks

I want to have a trip to Fairbanks, Alaska in October 2013, I would like to know is there any train runs from Anchorge to Fairbanks in the middle of October? By the way, is it the good season to see the northern light at this period and how about the temperature? Please reply for me if anyone knows. Thank you!

Temperatures will be below freezing in Southcentral Alaska and the Fairbanks area. If there are clear skies and the lights area active you should be able to see them. The train only runs Anchorage to Fairbanks on Saturday and Fairbanks to Anchorage on Sunday but a flight can be nice and even less expensive.

Here's more info on northern light viewing in Fairbanks:


We've taken the aurora winter train & have enjoyed the train ride. It was fun to see the folks going to/ from their cabins at the whistle stops and to see the amount of snow at the cabins.
