Where are we going today?

Choo Choo all aboard! We're about to embark on an adventure on one of the OLDEST regularly scheduled vintage operating trains in the entire North America. How amazing is that!

Grab those conductor hats, because the Prairie Dog Central Railway gives you that vintage locomotive experience from Inkster Junction Station, all the way to the rural community of Grosse Isle.

This seasonal experience is such great fun for the family, and also gives you a chance to experience history too. The steam locomotive was built in 1882, and has been restored to it's current condition, which gives families just like yours an experience to remember. The deisels were built in the 1950s, so you are surrounded by history!

With it's old luggage, milk cans, wrought iron benches and baggage wagon, the Prairie Dog Central Railway really gives you the experience of traveling nearly a century ago.

There are seasonal train experiences, including themed events which are always super fun for kids including Mystical Magic Trains, Train Robbery experiences and a Howlin' Halloween experience too!

Don't miss out on the Grosse Isle Railway Fall Supper either, where you can go back in time on a 1900-vintage train and enjoy the tastiness of a home-cooked meal! 

Check out what's in store during the stopover, from restored heritage buildings, to vendors selling their home baked goos or handicrafts. There is plenty more to enjoy than just that amazing train ride through the Canadian countryside!

All aboard - your family day out on the Prairie Dog Central Railway is about to begin!
