Need information on HAL’s Alaska “cruise train from Seward to Anchorage and the dome train they use from Anchorage to Denali

About what time do you leave the Noordam to take the “cruise train” ? Is there any time to see anything in Seward? What is the train like? How long is the journey, scenic ? Likewise the same for the dome type train for the second leg of the journey from Anchorage to Denali?

I can’t comment on the train ride from Seward to Anchorage, we did take the domed train from Denali to Anchorage.

I remember the ride being long. If memory is right the ride is around 6 or 7 hours. The domed car is nice and the seats were comfortable. The scenery was beautiful.
