The Alaska Railroad Depot at Denali

During peak summer season at Denali, many hundreds of visitors come and go each day through the Alaska Railroad Depot. A southbound train arrives from Fairbanks around noon. A northbound train from Anchorage arrives around 4 pm. Other express trains arrive at other times on other days. In winter, the schedule is limited to weekends only, north from Anchorage on Saturdays, and south from Fairbanks on Sundays.
