I am sorry if this is a stupid question but is the White Pass Summit Rail and the Yukon Rail one and the same thing? My husband (age 50) and I are doing an Alaskan cruise in August and looking at the various options for excursions in Skagway and have seen the above phrases used for excursions and are not sure whether they are the same thing. If they are not could someone please explain the difference. We have also seen an excursion that involves a visit to a suspension bridge -does the train take you to here or is that further on? If so how would you get here and also do the rail journey? This is the first time we have been to Alaska and are looking to build some memories, any recommendations as to excursions also gratefully received. We are doing whale watching and the Mendenhall Glacier in Juneau and a flight in Ketchikan (through an independent operator from the cruise line which is Princess Cruises).
