Alaska's Full Service Railroad

Established in 1914, the Alaska Railroad was operated by the Federal government until it was purchased by the State of Alaska in 1985. Chartered to operate as a Private Enterprise, the Alaska Railroad receives no funding from the State of Alaska. All operating expenses and improvements are paid out of revenues generated by passengers, freight services, and real estate.

Efficient handling, well-trained personnel and over 80 years experience make the Alaska Railroad an exceptional value to its customers.

Committed To Constant Improvement

The Alaska Railroad is committed to providing the best possible service to its customers. Our approach assures responsive customer service and reliable delivery under some adverse conditions. It requires constant improvement in systems and techniques and is backed by reinvestment in capital improvements.
