White Pass Meets Princess
Skagway, Alaska became the way into the Yukon after completion of the White Pass and Yukon Route RR. Started in May 1898 and completed in July 1900 it is a marvel of engineering and construction. By that time the Alaskan gold rush was over. I've included a link to railroad website if you want to read more about it.
If you go on an Alaskan cruise, almost all of them stop in Skagway for the day. One of the excursions is taking the White Pass and Yukon Railroad up to Canada and returning. The train leaves from the cruise ship docks and returns you there about 4 hours later.
