The Alaska Railroad builds upon its unique passenger car fleet and raises the bar of luxury rail travel with the addition of two new custom double-deck railcars.

Confirmed seat in the upper-level dome car Complimentary non-alcoholic beverages served at your seat Priority seating in the lower-level dining room showcasing original Alaska artwork Private outdoor viewing deck - the only one of its kind

The high demand for the new GoldStar Service aboard the Denali Star train has led the Alaska Railroad to purchase two more of the $3.5 million luxury dome cars for the Coastal Classic Train to Seward.

The only way to experience the GoldStar Service is aboard the Alaska Railroad's Denali Star and Coastal Classic Trains - the perfect way to experience the grandeur of Alaska.

These lavishly appointed cars will quickly find their place among Alaska's wonders. Featuring custom-designed interiors highlighted with original Alaska art, savvy rail travelers will delight in their features.

The cars will enhance the Denali Star Train that operates daily mid-May through mid-September between Anchorage and Fairbanks with stops in Wasilla, Talkeetna, and Denali National Park, and the Coastal Classic Train with daily round-trips between Anchorage and Seward.

The new cars are modeled on the latest 89-foot double-deck dome cars built by Colorado Railcar. Dine in comfort in 36 dining room seats with views through picture windows. Your dome-level reclining seats can rotate to accommodate groups of four and let you share the experience with friends. A full-time bar attendant is available to those looking for libations.

Products and Service:
Daily service mid-May through mid-September between Anchorage and Seward, Whittier, Wasilla, Talkeetna, Denali or Fairbanks. Day tours and overnight packages feature some Alaska most popular tours. Weekend service mid-September through mid-May.

Alaska Railroad souvenirs and gifts are available for purchase in the Anchorage, Denali and Fairbanks depots.
