This is an interesting place full of rail history. Carcross is unique and so is the railway station.

We stopped for ice cream at the general store and then walked accross the tracks to see the old train station. We didn't go inside, but they have the old front of the train preserved at the side of the building. We got inside and saw what it would have been like to be the conducter of that train...freezing I'm sure and pretty cramped quarters!

Listed as an historical Canadian Railway building, it was built for the White Pass & Yukon Railway. Now it serves as an excursion terminus for tourists on the stunning White Pass journey from Skagway, AK. Situated at the edge of Lake Bennett, this red building can’t be missed, as it basically stands alone.

We drove from Skagway and found enough to see (including this station) before heading back to the port. It is an interesting double story building and from all accounts has had some worthy restorations. As well as a working depot for the WP&YR, this building houses a Visitor Reception Centre, local historical displays, great old time photos and a gift shop with some interesting items.

Detraining or crossing the tracks if coming from the township accesses the building. A train just happened to be arriving as we were leaving so it was great to see some operational aspects.
If you happen to be in Carcross either by car or train and even if you are not a railway/train buff it is worth visiting this historical building in Carcross (nee Carcross Crossing).

Enjoy your visit!
