Thanks Nadine. The photos in the post above were taken around the last week of June 2007.
These Alaskan Photos were taken the last week of May into the first week of June in 2006.

For those wishing to avoid the seats on the "cliff side", please note some of the people with that thought changed to the cliff side. The reason was the train get pretty close to the rocks on the other side. You won't hit the side, but it did bother some.

Left side of the car...right side of the car~ Good timing will let you get both.

Last July I had the pleasure of taking one of the last trips "up the slope" that began at about 3:30 PM. All passangers in the car were from our ship, MS Statendam. There were only about a dozen folks sitting in our car, along with the train employee. We all had a window seat going up (left side) and a window seat going down (right side). We also had extra food (box lunches) as they must have ordered enough for a full house. Anyone for seconds? Thirds?

I do not know for sure if this situation often occurs, but the empoloyee of the train that was in our car indicated that the last train up the mountain often has a lot of extra room to stretch out and get great views. Also the "observation" area on the back of the car was not crowded at all because of the low passanger count. I believe that I could have spent the entire trip out there if I chose too.

Have a great trip.
