Additional Information

Menu Options

Over the years we have found that guests find meal choices more than ample. In special dietary circumstances, or as an alternative to the meat dish offered on any given day, guests can request pasta with a meatless spaghetti sauce by per-ordering at time of booking.

Public Time Tables

Train robberies are scheduled on all excursions with the exception of Pumpkin Fest, Teddy Bear Specials, Murder Mysteries, and The Polar Express. The Reynolds Raiders, a gang of mounted bandits, and The Pump Car Bandits, who use the rail to make their get away, rob guests of loose change. The money is donated to Alberta children’s charities.

Alberta Prairie offers a full range of day trips aboard a vintage train.  All excursions originate & return to Stettler and include a stop at the Country Hideaway unless another destination is indicated.

Alberta Prairie reserves the right to use alternative power (locomotives) in the case of mechanical failure.We hope you understand that we are operating heritage railway equipment that can be subject to mechanical issues. All inclusions are subject to change without notice, discount, or refund should circumstances arise which prevent delivery of such things as train robberies.

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.

Travel Times

Alberta Prairie recommends that you allow yourself enough time for a leisurely drive to Stettler.

  • Red Deer: one hour
  • Edmonton: two and a half hours
  • Calgary: three hours
  • Saskatoon: five hours
  • Lloydminster: three and a half hours
  • Kindersley: three and a half hours


Most of Alberta Prairie Railway’s cars are day coaches with rows of seats much like an airplane with each row numbered 1 to as much as 18 from north to south. The seats in each row are lettered A and B on one side and C and D in the same row number would be together but across the aisle. So a group of eight (8) seats might look like rows 5 and 6 and seats AB and CD. This would be a block of seats four on one side of the aisle and four directly across the aisle in the same rows. Depending in how things work out, another block of six seats might be rows 8 to 10 with seats CD, CD, and CD and that would be six (6) seats all together all on one side of an aisle.

The exception to all of this is Coach 5082 which has moveable single chairs and rows 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. all the way up to 14. Each of the rows or areas can have as few as one and as many as four seats all together in a block. Seats A, B and C can be on either sides of the coach. However, all of the odd numbered rows are on one side and the even numbers are on the other. In this case a block of six (6) seats, all on one side of this coach, might look like Row 5 seats A,B,C, and Row 7 seats A,B,C. This different seating arrangement applies only to Coach 5082 and not to any other coach in the fleet.
