Train and bus rides were great.
Sail Date: May 2019
Train and bus rides were great. Train picked up a bunch of hikers on return, they were supposed to be in a car by themselves, but 4 climbed into our car and they STUNK! VERY unpleasant last half of train ride.

Amazing trip.

Amazing trip. The White Pass railway is a must see. So amazing to think about when it was built and what little they had. The cost is worth it.

This rail experience left from the station and took us to the Canadian border in white pass and back. The scenery was beautiful and there are things you can only see by taking this train ride. The train and cars are old but meticulously maintained. The guide on the train kept us informed about the sights were seeing as well as some history of the area as we made our journey to the pass.
