There are other exciting routes available for your Alaskan adventure. They include the Coastal Classic Train, with service from Anchorage to Girdwood and Seward. This train winds through beautiful Alaska wilderness on the southern portion of the Railbelt, offering amazing views of mountains, glaciers and the Place River Valley. Or you might enjoy the Glacier Discovery Train, with service connecting Anchorage to Girdwood, Portage, Whittier, Spencer Glacier and Grandview.
How about a chance to ride one of America's last flag stop trains? The Hurricane Turn Train has delivered Alaska locals to their remote cabins and hidden fishing spots since 1923. On this wilderness run between Talkeetna and the dramatic Hurricane Gulch, get off the train anywhere along the 55-mile stretch. When you are ready to return to civilization, you can stop the train on its return with the wave of a flag. Or stay on for the entire route for a one-of-a-kind day trip.
