Default Anchorage to Talkeetna: CAR or TRAIN?

Why does it take 4 hours by train from Anchorage to Talkeetna but only 2 hours by car?
I want to take the car but I am afraid that i miss a lot of scenries by not taking the train. Is taking the train really worth it?

It is a 2++ hour drive Anchorage/Talkeetna, the train is longer because it is slower. The views are similar most of this portion to the Parks Highway. A car gives way more freedom for stopping along the way at sights- there are plenty and more lodging and dining options.
