Catch a ride on this miniature train that winds its way through a forest.

The Assiniboine Valley Railway is a 1/8 scale train that kids and families can ride through the Assiniboine Forest. Not to be confused with the Assiniboine Park Steam Train, this is a volunteer run train on private property.

Rides are a few minutes long and you may catch glimpses of wildlife. The trains are really neat and lovingly maintained by a crew of volunteer engineers.

The entrance is tucked away just off Roblin – pay close attention or you will miss it. It’s at 3001 Roblin Blvd, just west of Assiniboine Park.

Hallowe’en Weekend Evening Rides 2019

For the past 2 years the AVR has offered Hallowe’en themed rides on the weekend before Hallowe’en.  There were lights, pumpkins, skeletons, bone piles & lots of ghosts.  Occasionally someone jumped from behind a tree to scare the passengers, but not too much!  We are continuing this year.
Please note the time change & the price changes (reluctantly increased to help defray increasing costs).
