Fraser Meadows Steam Excursion

Fraser Meadows Steam Excursion

Engine #73, the pride of the White Pass fleet, will be undergoing an immense overhaul this winter and upcoming spring to ensure her use in the years to come. We are looking forward to the engine returning to service on July 8, 2019. Tickets are now available for the season.

Ride the Exciting and Authentic WP&YR Steam Train!

No other railroad is quite like the White Pass & Yukon Route. Against all odds, the iron trail was carved through some of the North’s most rugged terrain in 1898. This engineering wonder climbs nearly 3,000 feet in 27 miles of steep grades and cliff-hanging turns.

Relive the glory days of steam while traveling with one of our steam locomotives, Engine No. 73 or No. 69, to the Fraser Meadows Loop! Total of 54 miles round-trip and a duration of 4 hours.

This 54 mile round trip climbs from tidewater at Skagway to the Fraser Meadows Loop. The fully narrated tour passes through two tunnels, over sky-high trestles and cascading waterfalls, all while being pulled by one of our historic steam locomotives.
