I did extensive research for our first Alaska trip coming up this September. For almost the same amount of money ($114), an independent tour by mini bus (18 people max) did much more than the train only. The bus takes the Klondike Highway to Emerald Lake. Lunch at Caribou Crossing Trading Post is included as is a visit to the Yukon Wildlife Museum and a dog sled camp. They make stops along the way for photos, we have a live person to tell us what we are seeing and both of us can enjoy the scenery. Others who have been on this trip said they didn't feel they missed anything by not taking the train. Since we haven't been yet, I welcome others to comment on this trip.
