As I begin this blog of all things railroad, I thought it appropriate to open with a post of my “home” and favorite railroad, the White Pass & Yukon Route. I say “home” because my home of Juneau doesn’t have a current railroad. Growing up, I was privileged to spend a decent amount of time in Skagway. I can remember walking along the tracks, watching the tourists board the cars, as well as playing around old rolling stock and steam locomotives. And, of course, I remember riding the train.
I hope you enjoy the video and come back for future posts. I am an avid railroader with interest in both operational and defunct railroads. Prototype and model. And I do have a sweet spot for Alaskan and Californian rail.
Enjoy the ride,
