Default Looking to book White pass bus/train combo

I am interested in the short train/bus combination but can only find one place to book on skagway.com but the bus departs first and you return by train. I want to do the reverse, leave on train and return by bus.
Our cruise ship does not offer that combination. Where can I book a rail/bus combo with the rail portion first?

I am also looking for a recommendation between the original street car tour in Skagway (rated as an all time favorite) or the Dangerous Days of '98 show that is also highly recommended.

Would appreciate your advice.

Hopsey,

I think that the combined rail/bus tour operates in the direction that it does because there's also a combined rail/bike tour. The bicyclists take the train up the hill and mostly coast down the hill on the bikes. The passengers who ride up the hill on the bus get the cars that the bicyclists vacate.

The "Days of '98" show is excellent. I can't speak for the streetcar tour.

Norm.

Chilkoot Tours does the train first - http://www.skagwaysbesttour.com/summitrail.htm

You won't be disappointed in either the Streetcar tour or the show - both of them are both informative and entertaining.
