We took a bus tour to Fraser station, then rode the train back to Skagway. We lucked out with good weather, no rain, so had good photo opportunities. Nice to have the trip narrated with some history back ground.

This is a very scenic ride with lots of information along the way. Tons of sites to take pictures as you rumble along the tracks listening to history about Alaska. Very relaxing and enjoyable.

We found the afternoon was better as the fog had lifted. Train was busy no matter what time you went. It depends on how many cruise ships are in port that day.
