Hideaway Country Dinners


All Trains Depart And Return To Stettler, Alberta

Alberta Prairie's summer experiences are finished for this season put will return in 2022. Included in these adventures are rail excursion on board a vintage passenger train lasting between two & one-half and three hours, a full course cafeteria style meal at destination, entertainment, sightseeing and, with a few exceptions, a train robbery. These trips are great for adults travelling without children and families. The destination for Alberta Prairie excursions in 2021 was The Country Hideaway at Warden Junction. Warden at one time was a junction point between two railways - north south through Stettler and east west from west of Rocky Mountain House to Hanna. Alberta Prairie is excited to be showing off it’s new and exciting destination, with its natural park setting, and lots of activities including hay rides, nature walks, inside and/or outside dining, robberies by the Pump Car Bandits, on-site live entertainment, children’s barrel train, old-time carnival games, and a railway junction switching yard.

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.


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.

Reservations can be arranged by phone using MasterCard or VISA. Although we can sometimes accommodate passengers without reservations, we do sell out and a reservation guarantees seating.


With the exception of THE POLAR EXPRESS trains cancellations will be accepted up until 24 hours prior to departure. All monies advanced are fully refundable up to one week prior to departure. Cancellations within the last week, but more than twenty-four hours receive a gift certificate with a face value equal to tickets returned and that value will apply to fares on a trip sometime in the future. There are no refunds during the last twenty-four prior to a trip. With less than five (5) days notice, it may not be possible to seat passengers within an existing group. Please try to reserve all seats required with original booking.


Consistent with COVID-19 protocols cancellations with notice will receive a full refund posted to a credit card, conditional on the return of unused train tickets prior to January 31. There will be no cancellations or refunds for a reservation on a train that has already left the station.


Dinners are buffet style, served at the hall in community named and are prepared by the people of that community. Meals usually include either Alberta beef, roast turkey or home cooked and sliced ham, turkey or beef, potatoes, rolls, salads, vegetables and dessert.


Alberta Prairie recommends that you allow yourself enough time for a leisurely drive to Stettler – one hour from Red Deer, two and one-half hours from Edmonton, or three hours from Calgary.
