Default Train to Whittier

Does anyone have any information on the train the runs from Anchorage to Whittier, AK? My wife are going to take the south bound cruise in May. But first we're going to spend a week visiting our daughter who is stationed with the Air Force at ANchorage. We would like to tsake th train so she can ride with us before we get on the ship. Anyone have information like prices, transfers, etc?

This is from the Alaska Railroad website:

Roundtrip rates: Anchorage or Girdwood to Whittier RT - $68 adult/$34 child

Does your daughter have a car? You could drive past the whittier Tunnel turn off and go see Portage Glacier which is a few mile south on the Seward highway. You'll need to check the times that the tunnel is open for vehicle traffic and the cost to go through it.

the train ride is beautiful, but the drive is great also. One advantage of the drive is that you can stop along the way at some of the senic lookouts along turnagain Arm.

I hope this helps you.

PS Your daughter may be able to get discount tickets for the train at the Elmendorf AFB SATO office
