INTERparks White Pass Yukon Route
|GOLD! GOLD! GOLD!|
In the year 1898, in the middle of a gold rush, in the middle of a frenzy of excitement..in the middle of a northern winter, construction of a unique railroad began. It was built with English money..and Canadian engineering, and mostly American labor. The White Pass and Yukon Narrow Gauge Railroad was a bold undertaking.
This is a railroad enthusiast video!! There are present day scenes of steam and diesel narrow gauge equipment working on the White Pass.
There are lots of run-bys so you can see the special collection of historic cars that are unique to this line. The history of construction is recorded in historic photos and most importantly historic movie footage showing steam equipment of early years, engines now long gone, at work on the line. Thrill to the work of a steam rotary plow propelled by two steam engines, 70 class. and now on DVD!
