Alaska Railroad Open House - 5/1/16

ANCHORAGE - The Alaska Railroad Corporation (ARRC) invites the public to the “Railroad Days” community open house in Anchorage, 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 7.

Railroad Days events provide Alaskans with a unique opportunity to interact with railroaders and to learn about the state’s railroad. The open house features popular FREE train rides, along with static displays of railroad locomotives, railcars and other equipment that afford an up-close, hands-on experience. When folks climb aboard the static passenger train — the Alaska Travel Train — they will discover ideas for exploring the state’s railbelt communities. KMXS 103.1 FM Radio will broadcast live from the depot, playing upbeat music that adds to the festive atmosphere. Several activities are geared toward children, such as railroad balloons, tattoos and train safety giveaways. Affordable hot dogs, snacks and beverages will be available thanks to a local PTA. The railroad’s depot gift shop and rail ticket counter will also be open, and the Alaska Railroad will be offering Open House Specials featuring amazing deals on rail travel.
