Teddy Bear Special Schedule

All trains depart and return to Stettler, Alberta
(Updated: Tuesday September 02, 2014)

   Teddy Bear Specials are really a variation on our popular "Country Dinner" theme trips and are good for all ages. These diesel-powered trips last five and one-half hours and  include a full course Alberta roast beef buffet, entertainment, and an awful good chance of a train robbery. The only real differences between these trips and a "Country Dinner" are the very large number of children on board and entertainment is directed at the children, usually clowns and children's sing-along. Adults are generally entertained by watching the children being entertained. There is one-half hour at the end of the Big Valley stop to allow for a teddy bear promenade involving the children and their bears. Everyone gets a prize.
    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. Want more information?

                                  PUBLIC TIMETABLES
Alberta Prairie reserves the right to substitute trips to different destinations and to use alternative locomotives in cases of mechanical failure. Although train robbers are scheduled on all (A) excursion with meals, they are only guaranteed on (B) special event and (C) APST Limited excursions. 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 train robberies.

There are no more of this popular style of excursions planned for this summer. Watch for their return next 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.
