Afternoon in Nenana

Today, we spent much of the afternoon in Nenana, a small town abut 50 miles from Fairbanks on the Parks Highway. This is the train station which I don’t believe is actually in use anymore. The train still stops in Nenana but only to load/unload cruise passengers who aro on the non-cruise portion of their Alaska adventure. That is a guess based on seeing a couple of tour buses go by laden with people. 

The second picture explains that the north-south section of the Alaska Railroad was completed near here. The train is actually a great trip and you don’t need to sign up for a cruise to take it.

  1. Cool history tidbit! If we make it back to Alaska, we will definitely take the trail to Nenana. Just a fun name to say. :)
