White Pass and Yukon Route

A Pictorial History

Stan Cohen

The Klondike Gold Rush spawned this railroad in 1898. The line was built to alleviate the hardships of the gruesome trip over the passes to the gold fields in the interior of the Yukon. By the time the railroad was completed in the summer of 1900 the rush was over, but the White Pass Route survived nevertheless, and continued for 82 years to provide a vital link between the Yukon and the outside world.
