“Hurricane Turn”
Reviewed May 30, 2014

Our first trip to Alaska would have not been complete if we had not taken the Hurricane Turn. It was the best. It is a flag stop train that picks up and drops off off-griders where there are no roads for travel. We stopped on the bridge at Hurricane Gluch. which is 296 feet in the air. The conductor Warren is very informative and made the trip very enjoyable.

“Wonderful train ride and views!”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

The hurricane turn train ride is an incredible trip. The last whistle stop train ride in the country provides a chance to see a transportation style that is almost extinct in the US. The view of Denali (Mt. McKinley) is spectacular. Conductor Warren is informative and entertaining. This is must ride in Alaska.

“Great Way to Travel”
Reviewed November 27, 2013

Being on the train is such an enjoyable way to travel and see the beautiful scenery of Alaska. Being the last whistle stop train is unique. The train stops to pick up and drop off folks that live up the tracks or have cabins up there. You can bring food and drinks as well.

“A Real Taste of Local Alaskan Life”
Reviewed October 22, 2013

We truly had a wonderful day aboard the Hurricane train. When travelling, we enjoy getting a feel for the "local" scene and this was just up our alley. Warren, the conductor was a real gem, so full of knowledge and great at engaging all his passengers. This is not a "deluxe" train ride, there is no food/beverage service, but it was fun, down to earth and the Hurricane Gulch bridge was awesome. We had the added bonus of riding with two local "celebrities", Mary and Clyde Lovel, who homesteaded North of Talkeetna some 50 years ago. Their homestead is right along the train route and Mary has written two books about their experiences, very enjoyable read!
