I remember some talks back in the early 1990s about connecting the airport to the city. However, I could not find any recent information about the project. Does anyone know the status of the station?
There is a rail station for the Alaska Railroad at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. It is only available during summer season for cruise ship service only.
Both Holland America and Princess Cruises lines operate tourist trains between Anchorage and Seward. Cruise line passengers sail a cruise ship north from Vancouver, B.C., disembark in Seward, ride the cruise lines trains to Anchorage and the airport, and fly back home - or vice versa. That's the purpose of the train station at the airport. Sorry, everyday airline passengers must use taxis, vans, buses, rentals to reach their final destination in Anchorage. There's only one other train station in Anchorage, which is used by Alaskan Railroad "intercity" trains, going towards Fairbanks, etc.
