The Aurora Express is a bed and breakfast in Alaska where you stay in renovated railroad carriages. These vintage carriages were set to become a museum until the Wilson family decided to turn them into a Bed & Breakfast.
Now, the old railroad cars sit high on a hill overlooking Fairbanks, the largest city in the Interior region of Alaska. You can stay in the National Domain Car which is a 1956 Pullman sleeper, one of only 11 made in this series. It has been divided into suites, each one decorated to represent a different period in the history of the Alaskan railroad. The Arlene is a hospital car that was used in World War 2 – its 80-foot length has been converted into two bedrooms. The Golden Nellie Caboose is the luxury option and is decorated fit for a monarch. Breakfast is served in an authentic Diner Car with a beautiful mural painted on its ceiling.
