We are a couple in their 60's who wanted a weekend country getaway from Toronto and Port Stanley fit the bill. It's a small, friendly fishing town in Ontario on the north shore of Lake Erie. It has several good restaurants serving freshly caught perch and pickerel, a few very elegant women's clothing stores and some good jazz at a... More

Volunteers in Port Stanley are passionate to keep their little railway entertaining visitors to the community. We had a relaxing hour ride and enjoyed watching the families on the train. The volunteers work hard to engage everyone and make the trip a fun one.

A team of dedicated volunteers squeezes as much fun into an hour train ride as possible. Running along the right-of-way of the former London and Port Stanley Railway, a little industrial switcher locomotive pulls a train of three or four former cabooses along Kettle creek, up the hill, across a couple of bridges, and through pretty farmland and forests to...

my husband and I felt the train ride was over priced for what u got. Great for kids and there were a lot of them, but a little boring for the adults. This was the 15$ day trip ride.

We took this train ride the day after riding on Thomas the Tank Engine at the Day Out with Thomas event. All of us (including our 4 year old son) liked the Port Stanley Terminal Rail better. We learned about the history of the area, and there was interesting commentary about the local plants as well. The train stops at... More

The train ride takes about an hour total, and you get to experience the beauty of Elgin County and hear about some of the history of the village and surrounding area. A bit expensive but worth it as a treat!
