Alberta Central Railway Museum through its rail yard and exhibits, tells you the story of the work of railroaders, the story of train travel in Canada, the impact of Canadian Pacific Railway on settlement, and the importance of railway to Western Canada into the age when steam was retired. 

 

When Alberta Central Railway Museum pounded the last spike at its 10th birthday celebration in 2002, it completed a mile loop of track. 


Our visitors today can take a train ride on the restored 1926 first-class observation-buffetsleeper Mount Avalanche.


Here, in a vintage 1926 passenger coach, you will experience historic train travel, maybe for the first time, maybe as a way to bring back the sounds and motion of train wheels on steel track from days gone by.
