Locomotive 6060 Specials Schedule

All trains depart and return to Stettler, Alberta
(Updated: Saturday February 01, 2014)

  The destination for Alberta Prairie excursions is Big Valley. This community was the divisional point for the Canadian Northern Railway in the early 1900s. Feature attractions include restored railway station, roundhouse interpretive centre, St. Edmund Church and Jimmy Jock Boardwalk.

                              PUBLIC TIMETABLES
It is anticipated that the Rocky Mountain Rail Society’s steam-locomotive No. 6060 will pull the following APST excursion trains. Please keep in mind that Alberta Prairie reserves the right to substitute trips to different destinations and to use alternative locomotives in cases of mechanical failure. Inclusions on all excursions are subject to change without notice, discount, or refund should circumstances arise which would prevent the delivery of such things as a train being powered by Locomotive No. 6060.

It would appear that Locomotive 6060, the Rocky Mountain Rail Society's massive Mountain Class, will not be available for service this season. A second round of NDTs confirm that 6060 has some serious boiler problems that will need to be fixed before she will be certified fit for service. It is unlikely that these repairs can be made in time for this season.

Menu Options
Because of the nature of what it is we offer Alberta Prairie Railway is not able to provide alternative menu choices. Over the years what we have found is that guests find the buffet more than amble with lots of choices. In special circumstances, and as an alternative to the meat dish offered, guests can request a high-quality vegetable burger by pre-ordering at time of booking.

PUBLIC TIME TABLES
Alberta Prairie reserves the right to substitute excursions to destinations other than those shown in this schedule and to use alternative motive of power in case of mechanical failure.

RESERVATIONS ARE RECOMMENDED
Reservations can be arranged by phone using MasterCard or VISA. Although we can usually accommodate passengers without reservations, we do sell out and a reservation guarantees seating.

CANCELLATION AND REFUND POLICY
Cancellations will be accepted up until 24 hours prior to departure. No refunds will be made with less than 24 hours notice. Cancellations received less than seven (7) days prior will be issued a voucher of equal value for a future trip. With less than five (5) days notice, it may not be possible to seat passengers with their group. Please try to reserve the required number of seats with original booking.

RECOMMENDED TRAVEL TIMES
A leisurely drive from Calgary will take approximately three hours and, from Edmonton, two and one-half hours.

ALBERTA PRAIRIE COUNTRY DINNERS
Dinners are buffet style, served at the hall in community named and are prepared by the people of that community. Meals usually include Alberta beef, potato, roll, salad, vegetables and dessert.

FINE RAILWAY DINING (Winter Excursions only)
Dinners include a five-course meal with a choice of three different entrees, wine and entertainment.
