Alberta Prairie Railway

Enjoy a complete day on the train! Alberta Prairie Railway Excursions offers an exciting one-day adventure on board a real steam or diesel-powered vintage train. Different themes are enacted throughout the season, including murder mysteries, family, APST Limited, seniors, and teddy bear specials. For a day full of activities that are truly different and interesting, read on!

At some point during your excursion, the train may be brought to a screeching halt. Look out! It's the dreaded horse mounted "Reynolds Raiders". They are known to frequent these parts and on occasion hold up the train. But never fear, the law is on board and is there to stop them. After a short but furious gun battle, the money the outlaws took from passengers is retrieved. Since it's impossible to tell who the money belongs to, it is donated to several Alberta children's charities.

The train leaves Stettler, Alberta, and returns three to six hours later. Stettler is located in the Heart of Central Alberta and is a leisurely three-hour drive from Calgary, Alberta, two and one-half hours from Edmonton.

All excursions include a full course buffet-style meal which is included in the fare, onboard entertainment, and a train robbery. All meals during the summer are presented in the community hall or a large tent in Big Valley or at a large hard walled permanent tent at Alberta Prairie’s County Hideaway south of Stettler at Warden Junction rail yards.
