******** Last chance to ride the train this year!
Visit the Alberta Railway Museum this long weekend in vintage style. August 30, 31 & September 1st Our 1913 steam engine will be pulling the train, so wear your Fancy Hats and finery from the fabulous teens, the roaring twenties, and the flapper thirties. Pull out your Klondike gear. There will be prizes for costumes, as well as a photo contest. Experience the railway, and enjoy a vintage experience.
We are 100% volunteer operated. We need your talents and help. Consider joining us to help preserve Alberta's railway history.

Trains run on Summer Long Weekends - on the hour starting at 11:00 am. Last run at 4:00pm. Train rides are approximately 20 minutes long and include an interpretive narrative by our conductor. The museum welcomes visitors during SUMMER WEEKENDS from Victoria Day weekend to Labour Day weekend each year.
Due to the historical nature of our artifacts, many of our displays are, regretfully, NOT wheelchair accessible.
