GO NORTH - White Pass ship "Frank H. Brown"
Spring arrived and many freight will go North to Skagway and the Yukon. We remember the days, when White Pass & Yukon Route had a fleet of two large container ships. Without them, the North would not be as we have it today. White Pass was the first company with full container service wiorldwide. By truck, ship and train.
