In honour of this Red Letter Day, the Alberta Railway Museum will be running our "Made in Canada" passenger train, offering rides back in time. Board the train to head west and experience 125 years of travelling on the rails in Canada.
On Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, July 1, 2 & 3, enjoy a train ride, and then tour the grounds to see the railway equipment of yesteryear. Marvel at how a steam engine could travel over three thousand kilometers on two skinny rails Walk through restored railway cars, climb up into the locomotive and be the engineer, or be the conductor waving from the caboose.
Cold drinks, snacks, ice cream, and railway souvenirs are available in the station. Picnic tables are located on the grounds. Bring a picnic and stay for the day.
