A combination of elements from the historic dining car, replica train station gift shop, big rig friendly campsite, glam-ping caboose cabins and a full-size train offering various excursions.

Ales on Rails: Enjoy a true grain-to-glass experience on rails, with traceability back to a 5th generation family farm. Aspen Crossing Railway’s Ales on Rails proudly features Award Winning – Hard Knox Brewery along with Origin Malting & Brewing Ltd. Come taste a part of Alberta – local ingredients with an Alberta story. Discover why Alberta has become the ‘brewmaster province’.

All Aboard Brunch: Sundays brunch is served a la carte aboard our historic train cars. Indulge in delicious food and sightseeing. Gather everyone for a truly special get together all aboard our brunch excursion. Enjoy a 2.5-hour train ride through some of Alberta’s diverse countryside while enjoying a beautiful brunch that includes champagne toasts (apple juice sparklers for the kids)! Train robbery completes your experience!

High Tea: Nothing beats a great cup of tea, except if it’s High Tea, served aboard the Aspen Crossing Railway! Savour a traditional elegant pastime; fine china, fancy finger foods and some great company! All while you indulge in a leisurely train journey that takes you back in time for a new experience!

Fun In the Field: Taking the place of our Circus Train, get ready for some great family fun. Take a relaxing train ride through the expansive prairies. Stop to enjoy the beautiful scenery and play games with the kids; nerf games, large lawn games, obstacle course and more. Then board the train again for a great return ride home. Various age level activity packs included with child ticket purchase. Join us for a train ride, games and fun for all ages.

Prairie Tour: “The Golden Age of Grain.” The Mossleigh grain elevators are believed to be the rare few, original elevator rows in Canada. At the Industry peak in 1935, there were well over 5,700 grain elevators dominating the prairie landscape. Today, there are less than 350 remaining across the prairie provinces. Come celebrate our railway ties aboard this historical and educational excursion. With musical entertainment, train robbery and a stop at the iconic prairie sentinels. Food and Beverages available for purchase onboard the train.

Twilight Tour: Imagine an expansive sky bursting with colour across a vast horizon. Come see why photographers love to capture the prairie twilight and all its splendor! This excursion is a great way to kick off the stress of the week and wind down with the living landscape that is the Alberta prairies!

Wine & Cheese: Beyond All Grapes, to share a “one of kind” – organically natural Alberta made, honey wine. It’s divine!
