I thought the train was comfortable, if albeit a LONG alternative of transportation, and there was not much food offered, but the tour guide KNEW his stuff... that's worth every penny and hours of sitting.

Alaska Railroad and it's employees are amazing. It's not just a train ride. The views, the food, the beer, the narrator, all were top notch and well worth it!

There is a gift shop, and during Fur Rondy there is a model train set up in the lobby. Other than that, there really isn't much to it.

The place has charm and history. When we visited they had quaint little model train displays running. There is also a really nice little gift shop. It is free to check it out so stop in for a few minutes.
