That is because there isn't a train from Vancouver to Alaska . . . there is a train in Alaska as well as trains in Canada, but they don't connect. :)

So you cant take a train up to Alaska and then pick up another train?

Is the only way to get up there by cruise ship or plane?

I think it would take too much time out of our vacation to drive.

Any advise would be much appreciated.Thanks SYOTR

As coalminer said, no train goes to Alaska - you have to fly, cruise or drive. It takes four 12-hour days of driving to get from Seattle to Anchorage.
