Two trains move passengers on historical routes
The great state of Alaska is served by two railroads -- the Alaska Railroad and the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway.
The state-owned railroad also offers weekend service between Anchorage and Fairbanks in the winter.
The White Pass & Yukon Route railway, based in Skagway, is a popular excursion for cruise-ship passengers.
The historic route, which echoes the trip taken by stampeders during the Klondike gold rush of the late 1890s, crosses into Canada and returns to Skagway two or three times a day during the cruise-ship season.
A common question is whether it's possible to take a train to Alaska from the U.S. Lower 48 or from Canada.
The answer is "not yet." There's no connecting rail service.
