Thanks for sharing the news, TPho.

Here are more details and a photo from Anchorage Daily News: http://www.adn.com/article/20140730/railroad-says-switch-failure-caused-derailment-southeast-alaska

Wow – that’s a terribly unfortunate accident.  We’ve enjoyed this very same shore excursion in the past and recommended it to friends who also loved it.  We wouldn’t hesitate to book this tour again in the future.

This is good information to know about. We just booked a cruise for next year.

It is always sad to read about such an accident.
