Gold Dome vs Adventure Class on Train

Is there a noticiable difference between these two services on the Anchroage to Talkeetna trip?

We are buying Gold Dome tickets for Anchorage/Seward train.

We did the Fairbanks to Denali & Denali to Talkeetna leg in early June. There were very few people in adventure class & we were able to spend all of the trip in the viewing carriage. The allocated seats are also fine as was the dining car. The people travelling with the cruise companies travel apart in their allocated carriages.

We travelled from Anchorage to Seward by road- you will love the scenery!

We did the Gold dome and it was great. It has a viewing platform for great picture taking which is a plus especially when the mountain is out. You will get great pics and it is very comfortable. It was well worth the extra money. Margie

We're looking to do the same trip (Anchorage to Talkeetna r/t) . Are the seats assigned in Gold Dome? Does anyone have to sit backwards? Thanks.
