  • Winter was four hours a day on Saturday and Sunday, the Fairbanks station opening hours. Saturday train arrives around 4 hours. Sunday's 8:30 morning train departure have 4 hours from 7:00. No bus by taxi from downtown gratuity included in 15 was $. Everyone other than our parents did ride. Diorama was very fun but they closed and were only seen through the glass. There clothing and souvenirs of the Alaska Railroad original Railfan friend bought a souvenir.

  • This is a wonderful Railroad museum that not only houses the first locomotive in the Yukon and Interior Alaska, but has history about all of Alaska, steam locomotives, and railroads in and around Alaska. They restored Engine #1 to a full running service, and so many times a year they take passengers around Pioneer Park. You can have a free tour of their museum and shop, and possibly even ring the bell of Eng. #1! Along with the locomotive, they have a true Ford Model-T which is known as a Depot Hack that takes luggage to the luggage car from the depot. They also have speeders and other rolling stock to see!
  • The park and museum are open from noon to 8 p.m. daily between Memorial Day and Labor Day.
