Railway Days

September 23 & 24, 2017

There is fun for the whole family at Railway Days! As one of the few sites in North America with two steam locomotives, our trains take centre stage for two days with demonstrations, hands-on activities, and exciting exhibits. 

Rare Steam and Rail Experiences

  • Double-heading of Heritage Park’s two steam locomotives
  • Unveiling & inaugural start up of the recently completed CP Rail Steam Railway Crane, the only working 100 ton locomotive crane in Canada!
  • Demonstrations of all Heritage Park’s steam equipment – the Case 65 steam engine, the Watrous Steam Roller and the Oilwell Supply stationary steam engine
  • Demonstrations with original 1907 turntable
  • Taking on water from a 1902-model tower
  • Hand & whistle signal presentation
  • Caboose rides, with a few special cupola seats
  • IT’S BACK! - Send a real telegraph from one rail station, and pick it up at another – keep the free souvenir!
  • Hooping orders to the engineer on our moving train
