Alaska



Built in 1898 during the Klondike Gold Rush this narrow gauge railroad climbs 3,000 feet in just 20 miles and features steep grades up to 3.9% with cliff hanging curves of 60 degrees through two tunnels, numerous bridges and trestles. . A world class historic civil engineering landmark where tourists experience the breathtaking panorama views of mountains, glaciers, waterfalls and historic sites from the comfort of vintage parlor cars.
