From mid-May to mid-September, the Alaska Railroad’s Coastal Classic train departs early from Anchorage, makes a brief stop in Girdwood, and continues the journey south to arrive in Seward just after 11 a.m. This late morning arrival is the perfect time to connect with a glacier cruise in Resurrection Bay or Kenai Fjords National Park; the cruise operators will have shuttle transfers waiting to meet the train, or stretch your legs on the short walk from the Seward Railroad Depot to the harbor. The Real Alaska Tour also meets the train at the depot, and a Seward City Shuttle provides easy transportation for passengers spending the day in Seward prior to the Coastal Classic’s 6 p.m. departure.
