Upon arrival in Anchorage it was a zoo. No one knew where to go, it was mass confusion. I did hear that the RR had only had 1 passenger car of ppl and this week there were 4!
The walk to the train cars were terrible slick. I saw several fall down.
The seats were comfortable and it was a very enjoyable way to meet other ppl and see the beautiful scenery from Anchorage to Fairbanks. We really enjoyed it.
The staff was way over worked. Running everywhere. In-spite of their running we couldn't get into the dinning car until after 3! The food was really good, but we were starved by that point! :)
I would assume by summer the staff would be trained to handle the crowds. They were friendly just wayyy under staffed.
