Treat Dad to a day out on the train to the Village of Big Valley and return. Includes chance for some lucky dad traveling with family to win a $500 gift certificate, a full course buffet style barbecued ribeye steak meal at Big Valley’s community hall, complementary wine or beer with the meal, live entertainment on the train, time to visit Jimmy Jock Boardwalk, restored station, rail car museum, and roundhouse and elevator interpretive centres, and the cars and household artifacts at McAlister Motors community museum. Be sure to spend some time at the world-class Big Valley Tool Museum building south-west of the station. Mine payroll on board increases danger of being hit by the Reynolds Raiders horse-mounted outlaw gang.

Old Time Family Picnic

Bring Grandma, Grandpa & kids and enjoy old fashioned family picnic, and what would a picnic be without a full course buffet style beef on a bun and hot dog meal plus take-home bean bowl. This trip lasts four (4) hours, and travels to Alberta Prairie’s COUNTRY HIDEAWAY and its beautiful natural park setting. Trip includes games for the children, hayrides, nature walks, inside and/or outside dining, on-site live entertainment, and the children’s barrel train. Please be advised that Ol’ Time Family Picnic excursions do not include train robberies.
