Alberta Prairie Railway Excursions

It was an awesome weekend. Specially Sunday. We got up early in the morning at 6am got the kids dressed, packed some snacks and off we go, destination Stettler Alberta. We decided to go on the Alberta Prairie Railway Excursion. It's a great little getaway for families, and not only. It is an hour long train ride to the town of Big Valley, Alberta, with great scenery along the way, and the nostalgic feel of an old train ride. There is also an added bonus of experiencing a true train robbery. It is actually quite exciting and all the "proceeds" go to the children hospital. You can read more about the excursion on the above link. Now lets get on with the photos. I made these so they reflect the olden days. Enjoy.
