September marks the Alaska Railroad transitioning out of summer service. Passengers have a few weeks before the start of Aurora Winter Train’s weekend service. The train heads northbound to Fairbanks Saturdays and southbound Sundays starting Sept. 18, with select weekday service in February and March 2022.
Passengers can also share their best snaps of the Railroad in the Catch the Train photo contest. Twelve winners will have their image featured in the 2023 calendar and vie to be the contest’s grand prizewinner. Just upload a photo through Facebook, or post it on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag #CatchtheTrainAK.
