Hi, we're departing Radiance on a Friday and taking our "checked luggage" to the train for our 6 pm train departure.

Our plan is to take a taxi to Exit Glacier and do some hiking. We will have our "train carryon" luggage (backpack size) and don't want to haul ALL (there are 2 adults, 2 teens) of it with us, probably just one or two backpacks w/drinks and food. The other 2 items we'd like to leave somewhere

Is there a day storage option in town? I read somewhere about a "shelf" in the train station. How secure is the area? We'd carry passports and meds/electronics with us but is there a locker storage somewhere?

As we'll be on our own, using a tour operator place (which most people post as the solution) isn't an option.

Thanks for any thoughts!

Hello! We ended up just hanging out in town that day but did check our luggage in at the station (under cover, it was raining) and dropped day bags in the office. When you pick up your tickets there is a large shelving unit in the same office and you can easily leave a day bag or anything you'd like to carry onto the train. We left 2 rolling backpacks and our son's regular backpack. Just picked them up later when we went back to board the train. No "claimcheck" or anything but I felt fine leaving basic items there and carrying our valuables/electronics with us!
