2021 WIlderness Express Schedule

Below is the current Wilderness Express train schedule. The Wilderness Express runs between Anchorage, Talkeetna, Denali Park, and Fairbanks. These privately-operated dome railcars generally make up the last two cars on the Alaska Railroad's Denali Star train, so they follow the same schedule.
