Review of White Pass & Yukon Route Gateway to the Yukon DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
Travel to scenic Alaska, British Columbia and Yukon aboard the trains of theWhite Pass & Yukon Route.

In this program:

Experience being on board the train, trackside, and in the locomotive cab as the train climbs from sea level in Skagway, Alaska, to an elevation of 2,864 feet at White Pass, only 20 miles away! Watch as the train clings to the side of the mountain and dives through tunnels.

To see the rest of the line's operation, you will ride the train out of Carcross, Yukon as it goes along the shores of beautiful Bennett Lake, then climbs Fraser Hill to Fraser, British Columbia.

Enjoy scenes of the 2-8-2 steam locomotive #73 in action as well.
Relive your Alaska vacation, or plan a new one,with this beautiful program. There's something for everyone!

Running Time: 60 minutes. Features chapter menus.
