I am going to Alaska in 10 days and am planning on taking the White Pass Railroad excursion. I cannot find the previous chat forum where recommendations were given for which side of the train (left or right)to sit on departing out of Skagway. I have also heard the last train is best as you're close to the outdoor viewing platform. Can anyone help with this? Thanks!
There is a little platform at the back of every car. Our car was assigned to a particular ship. As you enter thc car, sit on the side closest to the depot, you walk back into the train so it would be your right from the front back.
f-mattox is right. Everyone switches sides on the way back. We've been on several train rides in different states, but that one is the train ride of all train rides. You definately don't want to miss it.
