We have been twice and really enjoyed it. Both times we went for our kids. Once was a Halloween train experience and another was a Harry Potter themed ride.

Highly recommend for kids and train lovers of all ages.

This is a great way to see other parts of Manitoba. You leave the city, take the train ride and have a pit stop at one of our local town's where locals are there to welcome you eagerly and offer you some of their local food and ware. A great way to spend the day with your family.

What a great way to spend the afternoon. Nice train ride and a magic act at the stop over. Kids really enjoyed this event. Petting Zoo and food for purchase at the end of the line and the prices were very reasonable. Something not to be missed, they also have other specialty train rides (murder mystery, great train robbery etc)

A lot of fun, old train gives you a nostalgic ride to Grosse Ile where we stopped for lunch and a flea market area. That day there was a magician on board that visited each car and had a few'' tricks up his sleeve''. then he had a show at the lunch stop, where he entertained us all. Every weekend there is a different theme. At the ticket station there is also a gift shop, with many items for kids and parents alike. The Staff were great. Will go again.

Took a trip on the train today. The track roadbed was so rough that no one was allowed to even stand up while the train was in motion. Sure needs some re-alignment or whatever they do to fix the roadbed. Although there is not much to see, it would have been nice to be able to take pictures out either side of the train.
The train is run by volunteers so maybe they need some help from one or the other of the "big boys".
