Q: Is there a train that leaves Seattle, goes to Denali and returns to Seattle?
A: Unfortunately there is no rail service that travels from Seattle to Alaska. The Alaska Railroad runs from Fairbanks in the interior of Alaska to Anchorage in southcentral Alaska. They also have rail service between Anchorage and the coastal cities of Seward and Whittier. The only way to travel from the continental U.S. to Alaska is by flying, taking a 7+ day cruise or driving the Alcan Highway through Canada.
