Over the years we have found that guests find our buffet choices more than ample. For special dietary circumstances, or as an alternative to the meat dish offered, guests can request a high-quality vegetable burger by pre-ordering at time of booking.

Alberta Prairie reserves the right to substitute alternative motive power (locomotives) in case of mechanical failure. We hope you realize we are operating heritage railway equipment that can be subject to mechanical issues.
Reservations are Recommended
Reservations can be arranged by phone using MasterCard or VISA. Seating is assigned at time of booking. We can sometimes accommodate passengers without reservations, we do sell out and a reservation guarantees seating.
