Ride Guide to the Historic Alaska Railroad by Anita Williams and Linda Ewers (2003). Don’t forget to buy this guide – it’s only five dollars – because it provides you with a lot of background information and historic facts. I bought my copy in the giftshop at the Anchorage Railroad Depot.
alaskarailroad.com The internet gateway to the Alaska Railroad. Good site.
Rail Ventures – The Comprehensive Guide to Train Travel in North America by Jack Swanson (1996). An old rail travel guide which has an excellent chapter on the Alaska Railroad.
Alaska’s History – The People, Land and Events of the North Country by Harry Ritter (1993). Good, short overview of the history of the 49th state.
