A nice open air train ride with commentary from the conductor. There is a stop where you can get out and stretch your legs and take pictures.

An enjoyable ride in an older train set, slow enough to give you time to enjoy the scenic view and appreciate the work involved in the construction of the railroad track. Courteous and knowlegeable staff (volunteers). Old railroad cars were interesting.

We took our grandchildren down to Port Stanley this morning to ride the Port Stanley Terminal Railway 11:00 AM excursion. The railway operates through the summer on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM and 2:30 PM. The Saturday trips are longer than the rides the other three days. They go all the way to St. Thomas... More

The train was prompt in leaving. Being fascinated with all things mechanical, my husband was intrigues with the gigantic snow plow train car which open to explore.

Whether you are fans of old railways or not, this is a delightful way to spend a few hours especially with children. Follow the Kettle Creek Valley through residential backyards, over bridges, past Union Station and enjoy the air, the views and the running commentary which, invariably, is always laced with railroad humour. The train ride should be a highlight... More

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...
