PDC Railway Donation

During the annual VLS banquet, PDC Railway Ticket Agent Lorna Nelson and Marketing Manager Catherine Duffin present a cheque for $4800 from the proceeds of the 2016 Great Train Robberies. Accepting the cheque on behalf of Helping Hands for Manitoban’s with breast Cancer are Carla Fehr and Val Poole. The donation will make a huge difference to Helping Hands, thanks to all of the passengers who donated this season! 

If you are having a party in 2017 why not have it aboard the Party Caboose or Ride in the Caboose during the trip to and from Grosse Isle and have exclusive use of the Caboose during the stop over.

The Prairie Dog Central is pleased to offer Private Charters for the 2017 season. 

Continuing from previous years is Engineer for a Day! This is a great opportunity to pull the throttle, ring the bell, and pull the "whistle" cord on the classic diesel engine!
