GoldStar Service

The Alaska Railroad boasts double-deck dome cars on the Coastal Classic and Denali Star trains. GoldStar guests ride in the first passenger cars for the best views on the train.

The upper-level dome enhances your experience with forward-facing seats that rotate to accommodate families, a private bar, and an outdoor viewing deck – the only one of its kind in the world!

GoldStar seats rotate to facing

The only way to experience the GoldStar Service is aboard the Alaska Railroad's Denali Star and Coastal Classic Trains - the perfect way to experience the grandeur of Alaska.

These lavishly appointed cars will quickly find their place among Alaska's wonders.

Featuring custom-designed interiors highlighted with original Alaska art, savvy rail travelers will delight in their features.

The cars enhance the Denali Star Train that operates daily mid-May through mid-September between Anchorage and Fairbanks with stops in Wasilla, Talkeetna, and Denali National Park.

GoldStar is also on the Coastal Classic Train with daily roundtrips between Anchorage and Seward.

Dine in comfort in 36 dining room seats with views through picture windows.

Your dome-level reclining seats can rotate to accommodate groups of four and let you share the experience with friends.

A full-time bar attendant is available to those looking for libations.
