Wasilla Historic Depot

Location:
415 E Railroad Ave

Depot Hours: NONE
The historic depot in Wasilla is where the train stops to pick up passengers, however it is not staffed by the Alaska Railroad. The building is leased to the Wasilla Chamber of Commerce, and is often closed and locked at train arrival/departure times.

 



Passengers who are boarding at Wasilla should park their vehicles in the designated gravel area at least 10 feet from the tracks. Passengers board on the same side of the tracks as the depot building. The area is not sheltered from the elements, so please dress for the weather.
When the train arrives, be prepared to show your ID to the Conductor or the onboard supervisor, and they will give you a boarding pass which will have your seat assignment.
The train must stop traffic at the Wasilla depot, so passengers should be ready to board as quickly as possible.
