Alaska Railroad to offer one day of free rides to 50-year-olds next year

Are you turning 50 next year and reside in or plan to visit Alaska? If so, you can ride an Alaska Railroad train for free.

The Alaska Railroad Corp. is offering any passenger that turns 50 in 2009 one free day of rail travel anytime during the year to celebrate Alaska’s statehood anniversary.

Part of a “Turn 50 With Us” program, the birthday offer is valid for Adventure Class Service on the railroad’s Denali Star, Coastal Classic, Glacier Discovery, Hurricane and Aurora Winter trains. Bookings will be available beginning in fall.
