Alaska’s Klondike tourist train to resume after derailment

The White Pass and Yukon Route Railroad travels near Skagway, Alaska. Riding the train is the most popular shore excursion for cruise ships that sail each summer to Alaska. The train takes tourists on a 40-mile round trip from Skagway to the White Pass Summit., following the route of the 19th-century Klondike gold miners.
