Luckily we do not need a train during our journey to Alaska, we have hire a car. I ask some information about the train to our motel host. He's very informative
You can't rely on train in Alaska, due to infrequent schedule. But it seems they're frequently during State Fair, and Palmer is one of the biggest place in Alaska has this yearly event. In this time of year, it would be easy to come by train
The train stopped in Palmer. Palmer has nice big waiting shed, I wonder what happened to the ticket counter or was it reserve in advance? The Alaska Railroad operates a fair train every year for the Alaska State Fair, which travels over the Palmer branch and to South Palmer station. It seems to be very busy during the Alaskan state fair. The train stops right in front of the State Fairground, is so easy for the viewers.
