SKAGWAY, AK — Carrying on a century old tradition, White Pass & Yukon Route (WP&YR) has again produced a stunning 24″ X 36″ wall calendar for 2008.
For the feature image, WP&YR again commissioned renowned railway artist J. Craig Thorpe, who created “LAKE BENNETT INTERLUDE”.
A southbound diesel train from Carcross, Yukon and a northbound steam special from Skagway, Alaska meet at WP&YR’s 1904 Bennett station and eating house. Passengers greet hikers who have made the trek over the Chilkoot Trail and together they take in the serenity of historic St. Andrews Church and Lake Bennett with its towering mountain guard.
WP&YR will be distributing its calendar to tour companies, travel agents and industry partners and the calendar will be available for sale on-line for $9.95 or call 1-800-343-7373.
