I've ridden the White Pass & Yukon Route Railway a couple of times. The first time was from Skagway to the top of the White Pass. The train left the station downtown with the steam engine, but just outside of town they switched to the little green and yellow diesel engine for the trip to the top. That was kind of disappointing but a cool trip nonetheless.

The best time was after hiking the Chilkoot Trail.

We had made reservations on the train for the trip back to Skagway from Lake Bennett (end of the trail). I was excited to see that it was the steam engine waiting for us at the station! Bonus!

Back in Skagway.
