This was just great, we can't thank Sue enough for having us and giving us a wonderful time. We stayed in the caboose. This was a very unique place with a great view. Breakfast was great, can't beat the dining car for an eating location with the view. We canceled a hotel when we happened upon the Aurora Express. Sue was so gracious in letting us check in early after a long trip to the Arctic circle.
