At some point during your excursion the train may be brought to a screeching halt. Look out! It's the dreaded outlaw "Reynolds Raiders". They are known to frequent these parts and on occasion hold up the train. But fear not the Canadian Métis hero, Gabriel Dumont, is there to stop them. After a short but furious gun battle, the money the outlaws took from passengers is retrieved. Since it's impossible to tell who the money belongs to, it is donated to a number of children's charities.
The train leaves Stettler, Alberta, and returns five to six hours later. Stettler is located in the Heart of Central Alberta and is a leisurely three hour drive from Calgary; Alberta, two and one-half hours from Edmonton, Alberta.
All excursions include a full course buffet-style meal which is included in the fare, on board entertainment and a train robbery. All meals during the summer are presented in the community hall or a large tent in Big Valley.
During your journey on board the train you will travel through the beautiful rolling and treed countryside of Alberta's Parkland.
