Teamsters with the WP &YR Railway

The White Pass & Yukon Route Railway is Alaska’s most popular shore excursion and near the top on many Alaska & Yukon travelers’ must-see lists. The railway, now maintained and operated by members of Teamsters Local 213, was built in 1898.

In 1994, the railway was named an International Historic Civil Engineering Landmark, joining the likes of the Statue of Liberty and the Panama Canal in this prestigious honour.

Today, guests experience the breathtaking panorama of mountains, glaciers, trestles, and tunnels from the comfort of vintage railcars. Trips depart from Skagway, AK, Fraser, B.C., Carcross, YT, and Whitehorse, YT, between early May and late September.
