White Pass & Yukon Railway


I'm planning a summer or autumn 2019 excursion on the White Pass & Yukon Railway, preferably behind their steam loco. The 2019 steam loco schedules are not yet available, but I am seeking options for Inside Passage cruise lines which call at Skagway with sufficient dwell time to enable me to make the train trip. Open as to whether the cruise should be one way from Vancouver, or return.

Grateful for any advice.

This WPYR page indicates the steam train would seem to regularly run Thursday, Friday and Monday.


Without the benefit of the 2019 WPYR schedule it would be a gamble on your behalf to book a cruise porting in Skagway on days the steam train is running.

I would look for a cruise with a 7:;00 arrival in Skagway and an evening departure.

Hhhmmm. If you are the same person then you are in breach of TA rules for having more than one account.
