Country Dinner (A) type excursion is the most frequent and popular trip offered by Alberta Prairie Railway. These trips include a round-trip excursion on board a vintage passenger train from the 1920s lasting between five to five and one-half hours, a full course buffet meal at destination, entertainment, sightseeing & a train robbery. These events are great for children and families. The destination for Alberta Prairie excursions, unless otherwise indicated is Big Valley. That community was the divisional point for the Canadian Northern Railway in the early 1900s. Featured attractions include a fully restored railway station, the roundhouse interpretive centre, St. Edmund's Church, McAlister Motors Museum, the Hand Tool & Collectables Museum and Jimmy Jock Boardwalk.
