If you want to get a taste of Alaska' gold rush history, Skagway's White Pass and Yukon Route narrow gauge railroad will take you back in time in high style. You can ride the rails to White Pass Summit or continue into British Columbia, stopping at Fraser, Bennett or Carcross. You'll travel in restored rail cars pulled by diesel-electric locomotives. The White Pass and Yukon Route operates General Electric locomotives (pictured) and ALCO locomotives, as well as two steam locomotives.
