  • Way too expensive. I would use the train so much more often if it werent so expensive. They would make more money too. Everyone in talkeetna denali and fairbanks would use it to get to anchorage and other towns. Too bad.
  • My first train trip was on the Alaska Railroad and this train is wonderful . Very well done and my experience was beyond fantastic. Every Alaska trip I will be taking a train trip is was so enjoyable.
  • Excellent vacation package arranged by the ARR. Trains were clean and onetime. Staff was exceptional and informative
  • Nice little ride and your while in Anchorage Alaska.
  • The experiences are worth every penny
