Enjoyed my trip on the Alaska Railroad from Fairbanks to Denali and back. We rode in the Gold Star car and had a great time. The views are amazing from the domed windows and the food was also very good.

Sad to see so many kids playing in tablets and phones when they could be looking out the windows. If they’re just going to do that then the Adventure class should suffice. Just my opinion.

Some of the trip is narrated and the guide can answer any questions you have about things you’re seeing along the way.

If you’re going to Denali, stay overnight! There’s so much to see and do but not enough time if you’re not staying over night.

Did a lovely day trip to Seward and back. The scenery is breathtaking. We were adventure class outbound and gold star back to anchorage. The gold star had nicer seat, domed cars and a nice dining car complete with menu service and linen tablecloths. That’s the way to travel. We made a boat tour in Seward but the timing was just a bit tight for my tastes. All in all. a wonderful day.

This was our first time on a passenger train. We were impressed. We went up to Denali on Adventure class and back as Gold Star passengers. Both experiences were great. The staff was knowledgeable and quick to point out wildlife and landmarks. We saw Danielle on both trips. Pat was our tour guide on the way back to Anchorage. She told great stories. I highly recommend the train for convenience and getting a view of nature along the way.

We splurged on Goldstar seats on the Coastal Classic from Anchorage and we’re so glad we did. The domed observation car was perfect for viewing moose, bear, Dall sheep, and glaciers. As we were coming into Seward a flock of eagles flew right over our heads! Breakfast was delicious. So glad we spent the extra.
