Try your hand at moving down the rails using arm strong power like the silent movie star Buster Keaton.

Railway Heritage Day

Highlight will be a five & one-half (5.5) hour long round trip on vintage train and visit to historic railway town and yards at the Village of Big Valley. Come and join Alberta Prairie Railway and the Canadian Northern Railway Society in celebrating everything railway. Feature events include guided walk about tours of railway infrastructure, stage band in park behind the Big Valley railway station, and an outdoor barbecue weather permitting or at the Big Valley hall if weather is inclement. Regardless as to where pull on your boots and cowboy hat and dine on barbecued steak, chuckwagon beans, oven broasted potatoes, Caesar salad, and complementary beer with meal. There is also live entertainment on the train, plus time to do some exploring in the village including Jimmy Jock Boardwalk, the cars and household artifacts at McAlister Motors community museum, and the world-class Big Valley Tool Museum. We wouldn’t be the least bit surprised that the Reynolds Raiders mounted outlaw gang rob the train during the trip to Big Valley.
