Default White Pass Railway

Is the White Pass railway worth doing? It seems like there are more interesting ways to see the scenery, but then again, trains are cool! We're active and in our 30s. Thanks!

We thought it was very worth it do to the White Pass railway....it is a bit on the long side, I think around 3 hours and you come back the same route as going up, but the scenery alone is worth seeing and its very imformative on the way up. I doozed off coming back along with others, just something about the train ride.

This is a great trip. We saw 2 bears, and other wildlife. It is a narrow gauge railroad. I would not pass this one up.

It's a great excursion. They have you swap sides of the train you're sitting on the way then down... but on the way up you're better off to be sitting near the windows because that's when most of the narration is done. So that is on the left hand side of the train. It's very beautiful.
