wilderness express



We will be taking the Wilderness Express from Denali up to Fairbanks. Anyone have any experience on this train ride? How long a ride is this? Do passengers rotate from the lower dining area up to the upper glass dome area? Are there enough seats in the dome area? Is there a meal included?
Thanks much.


Denali to Fairbanks looks like a 4 1/2 hr. ride as per the Alaska Railroad train schedule. Try www.alaskarailroad.com for more information...........The cars like the "Wilderness Express" are simply added to the end of the everyday Alaska Railroad trains and thus run on the same exact schedule as the Alaska Railroad. I will be on that same train in August for the first time and I'm looking forward to the adventure..............I believe there are seats for everyone in the observation cars and you do not rotate..........Life is wonderful!!!
