Skagway's railway built of gold

Jun 7, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Examiner.com

Skagway, Alaska is known as the gateway to the Klondike Gold Rush of 1898. But did you know there was never any gold found in Skagway itself? How did this little town become so famous? It was the furthest point a ship could sail up the Inside Passage to reach the Klondike gold fields-over the Canadian border, 600 miles beyond the port.
