Our 2022 operating schedule is currently a work in progress.

WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS AND WILL BE RUNNING TRIPS AGAIN THIS SUMMER!

Based in Stettler AB, Alberta Prairie Railway offers exciting one-day adventures on a vintage passenger train from the 1920s. Different themed excursions are available throughout the year. These include Country Dinners, Adults Only specials, lots of family events, live stage shows, Country Carnivals and the Polar Express©. Join us for a day full of family friendly activities that are truly different and interesting. Our goal is to put smiles on your faces.

At some point during your excursion the train will likely be brought to a halt and robbed by the dreaded outlaw "Reynolds Raiders" or the "Pump Car Bandits". 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 various children's charities. In our first 32 years Alberta Prairie has donated in excess of $100,000 to various causes.

All trains depart and return to Stettler, Alberta.

The destination for Alberta Prairie excursions is either the Village of Big Valley or Alberta Prairie's Country Hideaway at Warden Junction.

The regulations that allow us to operate require that all passengers ages 12 years and older must present us with proof of double vaccination or failing that they must have proof of a negative COVID-19 test from not more than 72 hours prior to departure. There are no exceptions. As of yet there is no requirement for children 11 years and under to either provide a proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test. Face masks are however mandatory to board and exit the train for all passenger two years of age and older.

Where is Alberta Prairie Railway located?

Stettler, Alberta is straight east of Red Deer on Hwy 12. Alberta Prairie's station and passenger loading area is located at 4611- 47 Avenue in Stettler AB which is in the south-east part of town. Head for the only burgundy-coloured grain elevator and you will end up right at the station.

Went as part of a large group and had a great day. Beautiful scenery and fun music and a delicious meal in Big Valley to cap it off. Good for people with mobility issues as there are carts from the train to the community hall, where the dinner is, and also to various sites in town. My only quibble is plastic utensils, cutting thru the beef took a bit of work. Lots of history for those inclined.
