Should I ride the Alaska Railroad?

A huge, resounding “Yes!” The Alaska Railroad is a delight to ride and will take you through the countryside in Alaska. You’ll see sights impossible to see in any other way, while relaxing on your comfy train seat and gazing at the view around you through the huge picture windows. Grab lunch or dinner on the Dining Car, and grab a drink from the Bar Car. You can travel anywhere from Seward all the way up to Fairbanks on the wonderful Alaska Railroad.
