The Seward Coastal Classic Route (from Anchorage to Seward) is stunning. The route runs through the Chugach Mountains and passes dozens of glaciers. If you're lucky you'll sight dall sheep and moose along the way. The Denali Star Route is not quite as picturesque but still beautiful and nearly as enjoyable.
The train isn't the fastest way to get point-to-point but is well worth it. For example, the train slows for unique picture taking opportunities which the guides point out well ahead in advance. There are opportunities to shoot tunnels, gulches, glaciers etc.
In summary, we had a wonderful time on the Alaskan Railroad. (There are coupons for free round-trip tickets from Anchorage to Denali, Anchorage to Seward, Anchorage to Whittier in the Alaskan Toursaver booklet -- available from toursaver.com for $99.)
