Lovely scenery on this half-day train ride. Don't worry about on which side of the train you sit because when the train reaches the summit, you will trade seats with the folks across the aisle, move the seat back to the other side and you...More

We only took the train on the White Pass Railroad. We took it one way, and then changed sides and took it back to Skagway. Hope this helps you!
