Our Trains
  • Our trains operate daily in the summer and weekends only in the winter
  • Summer is mid-May to mid-September and winter is mid-September to mid-May
  • We have three main summer trains:
    • Denali Star - two trains, one runs south from Fairbanks to Anchorage and the other runs north from Anchorage to Fairbanks. Both stop at Talkeetna and Denali.
    • Coastal Classic - one train departs Anchorage for Seward, stopping at Girdwood, and then returning from Seward the same day.
    • Glacier Discovery - one train departs from Anchorage to Whittier, stopping twice at Portage before continuing on to Spencer Whistle Stop and Grandview. This train returns to Portage and Whittier, but not Anchorage. Passengers returning to Anchorage take a motorcoach from Portage.
  • The Hurricane Turn operates Thurs-Sun from Talkeetna in summer, traveling north to Hurricane Gulch and then back to Talkeetna.
    • This train only operates the first Thursday of the month in the winter.
  • The Aurora Winter train travels north from Anchorage to Fairbanks each Saturday and south from Fairbanks to Anchorage each Sunday of the winter season. We have a winter services section that includes vacations, tours, activities, and hotel options.
