2020 Excursions

All Trains Depart And Return To Stettler, Alberta

Alberta Prairie's popular experiences have everything. Including a rail excursion on board a vintage passenger train lasting between five and six hours, a full course buffet meal at destination, entertainment, sightseeing and, with a few exceptions a train robbery. These trips are great for children and families. The destination for Alberta Prairie excursions is Big Valley. This community was the divisional point for the Canadian Northern Railway in the early 1900s. Feature attractions include Jimmy Jock Boardwalk - the little town within a town, restored 1912 Canadian Northern station, St. Edmund’s Church – the blue church on the hill, rail car museum, McAlister Motors – community museum, hand-tool and collectables museum, and roundhouse and elevator interpretive centres.
