Train ride with the historical commentary was outstanding. The visit to Liarsville and getting the chance to pan for gold was a part of the trip I'll always remember.

Took the ferry from Haines to Skagway and boarded the train. Guided narrated tour of the gold rush days including wonderful stories about people including Soapy Smith who was so well liked he was buried 6 feet outside of the cemetery walls. Through tunnels and over tressels climbing almost 3000 feet into Yukon Canada. This is where the engine disconnects, and then re-connects to the other end of the train. Guests flip there seats and cross to the other side so everyone can have a great view coming and going. Spent a few hours afterwards shopping in Skagway before catching the ferry back to Haines. Haines is very small with about half a dozen local artisan shops. Nice break from the hustle and bustle of jewelry stores.

We had a very good time riding the White Pass Railway. The conductor provided lots of history, especially concerning the gold rush. Beautiful views as we traveled up the mountain and along the original trail used by the thousands of folks heading to the Yukon gold fields. The only slightly negative thing was having to wait for quite awhile at the top for the Canadian customs officials to come through the train checking passports.

Beautiful scenery. Don't worry if you're on the wrong side of the train on the way up. There is a mandatory seat switch to the opposite side of the aisle for the way back down and you'll get the great views. Comfortable train. Decent bathroom and plenty of free bottles of water.

Must do in Skagway -- train trip is spectacular. Book through the railroad -- it only costs $120, vs $200 or so through the crruise line.

Bus and train ride each offered different perspectives. Long wait at Canadian customs for nothing-- just to turn around. Salmon bake and show was tasty and fun. Brothel tour was fast and basic and not much to it.

Perfect day. Loved the dog camp and the explanation of dog sledding. Enjoyed meeting the dogs. The gold panning was awesome. Be sure to get the $ 25 pendant. Well worth it, great souvenir . The train ride was spectacular.
