DestinationsInFlorida.com or call 877-918-8941 to book your Alaskan adventure or cruise. While in Skagway, Alaska during our cruise, we decided to try the White Pass & Yukon Route railway to go up the mountain to White Pass. It was a really cool adventure that took us from Skagway up to the US border and back. We saw lots of beautiful, natural scenery, engineering wonders, and mountain goats! Here’s more info from the White Pass & Yukon Route Railroad Co.: Take an unforgettable journey aboard the “Scenic Railway of the World” to the White Pass summit. Begin your excursion as you board the train in Skagway and travel 20 miles from tidewater, to the Summit of the White Pass — a 2865 foot elevation! Relax in vintage passenger coaches as you retrace the original route to the White Pass summit, passing Bridal Veil Falls, Inspiration Point and Dead Horse Gulch. Enjoy a breathtaking panorama of mountains, glaciers, gorges, waterfalls, tunnels, trestles and historic sites. See the original Klondike Trail of ’98 worn into the rocks, a permanent tribute to the thousands of souls who passed this way in search of fortune. This 3 to 3.5 hour, forty mile round trip climbs from tidewater at Skagway to the summit of the White Pass – a 2865 foot elevation. The fully narrated tour passes through two tunnels, over sky-high trestles and cascading waterfalls. It’s our most popular excursion! Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush, this narrow gauge railroad is an International Historic

    @woodencoasterfan Thanks! Actually, they weren’t steam, just standard diesels. We wanted to do the steam, but they were not currently operational…at least that’s what we were told.
    You see them in the shot across the canyon to the one that was in front of us and a quick shot of our own engines at one point. Don’t remember the “Stairway” but that sounds pretty cool!

    Great job though I’d include some shots of the steam engine if that’s what was pulling your train. Were those restored Pullman rail cars you were in and did you see “The Stairway to Heaven” part of the trail? It’s a long straight ascent up part of a mountain that’s very steep.
