The Denali Star is a passenger and semi-luxury train operated by the Alaska Railroad between the cities of Anchorage and Fairbanks Alaska. It is a seasonal train, only operating between the months of May and September.[2] The Aurora Winter Train operates along the similar route during the rest of the year at a less frequent weekend schedule. The train is very famous for the stunning scenery it passes and is ridden by many tourists visiting the Denali National Park. The train consists of single level coaches and dome cars.
