Opened back in 1994, this family friendly experience lets you have a locomotive experience whilst surrounded by cotton woods and cedars. Nice to be out in nature too!

Now, you can see the second largest railway collection in the whole of Canada, and enjoy tours of their vintage locomotives in various stages of restoration. Some of them are as old as the late 1890s!

There are around 90 pieces of heritage railway rolling stock within the collection, in addition to a significant collection of amazing railway related items.

    Enjoyed the little train ride with 6 yr old grandson. We were very disappointed by the small train displays. At least on the weekends have them running for display purpose. After spending $40 plus $15 for the train ride for the 3 of us, one would expect more to see. Would we go back there? NO- It isn't worth the total plus tax $57. At least include the train ride for the overpriced attraction.
