Saturday, September 22 – The Railway Fall Supper (Buy here)

This is the second and last of the two Fall Suppers we have planned for 2018. Don’t miss out, but be sure to book early as this event sells out fast. Our passengers have joined us on this delicious trip for 38 years and it remains a firm favourite. As steam locomotive No. 3 leads the way, we look forward to a sumptuous, made-from-scratch supper of roast turkey, mashed potatoes, vegetables, dressing, cranberry sauce, salad, fresh rolls and dessert prepared by the volunteers at the Grosse Isle Community Hall. Visit with family and friends before we take a leisurely ride back to Inkster Junction Station.

Family Fun Day aboard the Prairie Dog Central has quickly become a family favourite. Join us onboard for a day that is going to be a complete sensory overload, there's something for everyone on the train today! Tap your toes as the Audayo Brothers perform live music in each coach as we make our way up the line. During the train ride there are balloon animals for the kids, and during our time in Grosse Isle stop by the caboose for a temporary tattoo. Visit the enthusiastic volunteers in the Heritage House, East Rosser School and take a moment in the Church. Secure a front row seat as we prepare for Patrick Gregoire’s mesmerising magic show. Bring along your own home packed basket or delight in the home baked pies, pastries, hot dogs and smokies freshly prepared by the locals.

Sunday, September 30 – Great Train Robbery - Cowboys and Gals (Buy here)
Steam Locomotive

That’s all folks, today marks the last run of the regular season! It`s been well over a century since the first train robbery and those irritating robbers are still out in force. 2018 has been a rough season as the Cowboys and Gals on horseback have continued to hold up the train and fleece our passengers of their spare cash. We have tried to dodge this gang of desperados all season but they always strike when we least expect it! Enjoy our onboard live entertainment performed by the Audayo Brothers, as we make our way though the prairies to the rural community of Grosse Isle. During the stopover, walk through our steam locomotive, savour the freshly baked goods or pick up a souvenir from one of the vendors before enjoying more live music. Prior to our departure, stop in the beautifully restored Heritage House, East Rosser School and take a moment in the Church.
Departure – 11:00 AM and Return – 2:45 PM
Adult Ticket - $32.95
Child - $24.95
