For decades this real coal burning steam train has taken riders on a journey through a forested area of Assiniboine Park.

The train looks and sounds like a real coal-burning train but is scaled down. Painted in bright colours, and running on railroad tracks, the train takes you through trees where can often see deer hanging out in the forest!

For only $3.25 a ride, this train is a hit with train-loving kids who get a huge kick out on riding on a ‘real train’. The train runs from May – September and operating hours may be weather dependent (often it doesn’t run in the rain). Visit the website or Facebook for more information.

Don’t forget to pop into the nature playground nearby in Assiniboine Park!
