Celebrate as 2023 marks the Alaska Railroads 100th anniversary! The 100th anniversary of the Alaska Railroad is a significant milestone in the state’s history. This railroad played a crucial role in the development and growth of Alaska, providing transportation and freight services to remote areas and connecting communities across the state. Since its inception in 1923, the Alaska Railroad has been a lifeline for many Alaskans, carrying essential goods, fuel, and passengers through some of the most challenging terrain in the world. Today, the railroad continues to play a vital role in Alaska’s economy and way of life. The centennial anniversary is a time to celebrate this iconic Alaskan institution and honor the hard work and dedication of the many people who have made it a success over the past century.
