We are excited to announce we will be opening for the 2020 run season on Saturday May 30th.

**Please visit alaskasteamers.com to make reservations and pay for your train rides. **

This year we are trying something new. With the current situation we will be doing rides by reservation and online pay only. (At least at this time.) This is to help us control the amount of people at one time on the grounds and to help with "social distancing" family groups while on the train. Wearing a cloth mask is recommended.

**Please visit alaskasteamers.com to make reservations and pay for your train rides. **

Times and prices are the same as last year.

Sadly our opening day will have to be postponed. We are not sure when, but are hopeful for late May or June with extra precautions. Please continue checking our page or our website for the latest information.

On another "track" our members are hard at work on projects to improve and repair the rail. With 18 acres our members are able to appropriately distance while working.

Here are a couple of current pictures of the grounds.
