Thread: Train from Talkeetna to Indian Creek

  1. #1

    Default Train from Talkeetna to Indian Creek

    Does anyone know the costs associated with riding the Train from Talkeetna and getting off at Indian Creek (can this be done?)? I was looking at the website and having trouble seeing any fares that would directly apply: http://www.akrr.com/arrc18.html

    The "Whistle stop" was $50 I believe... My buddy did it a couple weeks ago and said the rainbows were incredible.

    Thanks AKMud. Did your buddy get on in Talkeetna? And I am assuming, $50 is for a roundtrip?

    Default yes

    Beng,
    The $50 is for the round trip & yes you get on in Talkeetna, you actually get on the train in town, not out at the depot with the tourist trains.
    Looking at your schdule depending on where you want to go Indian crosses the tracks at one point around mile 266 & flows to the su from there. So you could use canyon as a guide on the sched.

    At some point they change from a daily service to once a week. Make sure you can get out when you want or you may have a few days to wait.
