“a recreational experience found nowhere else in the US”
A partnership between the Alaska Railroad Corporation and the U.S. Forest Service provides the public with a distinctive travel and recreational experience found nowhere else in the United States. And the only way to get there is on the Alaska Railroad.A new self-propelled railcar called a Diesel Multiple Unit (DMU), the Chugach Explorer, was introduced to the service in 2009. This all-in-one unit is suited for the Whistle Stop service because of its ability to stop and start in a short distance; and it is 50% more fuel effi cient, emits 72% less pollution and 75% less noise than a traditional locomotive configuration. It has the power to pull two additional railcars, or operate independently. This car is currently used on the Glacier Discovery Train.
