ANCHORAGE, Alaska, May 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Alaska Railroad is introducing all-inclusive dining for its GoldStar service, to launch in summer of 2015, which will mark the 10th anniversary of the Railroad's GoldStar Service.

"This is another example of the Alaska Railroad's commitment to continuously improving its services," said Alaska Railroad Director of Guest Services and Passenger Marketing Bruce LaLonde. "All-inclusive dining for GoldStar passengers brings added value and adds to the convenience of the Alaska Railroad experience."

With the new all-inclusive package, GoldStar guests will be able to enjoy any of the first-class meals offered by the Alaska Railroad's onboard menu, featuring a selection of local cuisine from Alaska seafood to reindeer sausage. Whether guests prefer slow braised pot roast – a long-time favorite on the train – or a light summer salad topped with Alaska salmon, meals will be included with the price of GoldStar rail travel.

The new all-inclusive offering will incorporate meals as well as beverages, both alcoholic and nonalcoholic. In addition to locavore cuisine, the Alaska Railroad is proud to serve local brews from Alaskan Brewing Company and Denali Brewing Company.

GoldStar seating is available on the Denali Star train between Anchorage and Fairbanks and the Coastal Classic train between Anchorage and Seward. These double-deck train cars have dome window ceilings on the upper level for optimal views and the lower levels feature original Alaska art. In addition, GoldStar cars are equipped with a private bar and an upper level outdoor viewing deck, a feature available only on Alaska Railroad.
