Alaska Railroad in the Morning

We rode on the Alaska Railroad one day to get from our "base" of Girdwood to a town named Seward where Eileen's sister Annette, Annette's husband, Darrel and their son/our nephew, Dylan were staying.  We all met up in Seward and went on a boat tour that was not good for land-lubbers so to speak.  However, the train ride to and from Seward was spectacular!  We sat in the "dome car" where the windows wrapped up into the ceiling so you could really see the landscape. You can sort of see it in the far left portion of the image here.  It also had a viewing platform in the back of the car that was outside so one could really get some nice pictures.

Also, the car had two levels.  We sat in the top level, but down below is a dining area where we had our dinner on the way back.  I gotta say that our meals were two of the better ones we had on our entire trip!  That doesn't mean we ate at many bad places... no.  Alaska Railroad has a very good chef on-board their trains and the food was outstanding!  It was just a great all-around experience.  When we go back we are taking the train again!
