Schienenabenteuer

Mit der Alaska-Railroad durch Amerikas 49. Bundesstaat

Die Alaska Railroad schlängelt sich von Seward bis Fairbanks. Panoramawagen bieten grandiose Aussichten auf Amerikas Nordwest-Zipfel.

Direkt nach dem Start in Anchorage fährt der Zug an der Bucht Turnagain Arm vorbei, bevor die Fahrt in die Berge geht.

Anchorage.  Dustin Slinker ist ein Meister des Filetierens. Lachse sind sein Metier. Um sie fachgerecht zu zerteilen, wetzt er während der Sommersaison von früh bis spät das Messer. In Anchorage beginnt die Wildnis mitten in der Stadt. Am Ufer des schlammigen Ship Creek stehen Einheimische und Touristen in langen Gummistiefeln oder Wathosen. Alle hoffen auf den großen Fang.
