The Depot is down a steep hill and just on the edge of the city of Anchorage. I had pictured Anchorage as a forested beautiful small city. It is run down, empty and pretty much just souvenir shops that are closed up because it's spring....More

As we waited to board the train we could browse the tiny gift shop as well as the model train display. It can get a little crowded in the terminal.

This is a large, clean and high ceiling waiting area. There’s a nice souvenir store and the trains are very easy to access.

If you are taking the Alaska Railroad from Anchorage then this is your station. If not, stop by for a quick family photo next to the model train outside.

The Alaska Railroad uses this station for travel to cruise ports, hiking, camping, Glacier Parks and more. This is the only railroad that has flag stops along the way. The building is clean, ADA accessible. Rail cars are comfortable, have snack areas and restrooms.
