About our trains !
Whether steam, diesel or electric in appearance, all of our locomotives are built to look like ones that have been, or are, in service on railways around the world.
We have three battery-powered miniature electric and diesel locomotives, as well as a gas powered hydraulic engine, that are ready to respond quickly when demand for rides is high.
Our most prized engines, and the ones that everyone wants to see and ride on, are four hand-crafted steam engines: each locomotive has been built from drawings, patterns and castings, and then machined, fabricated, and welded into a finely detailed 1/8 scale miniature of the full-sized prototype.
The proper coal for small steam locomotives is hard to find in Canada; therefore, three of our engines burn propane, and only one is coal fired. Why not stop by and see if you can spot our coal fired steamer, or better yet, ride behind it?
Many of our volunteer members own locomotives, and sometimes they take their engines out for a run around the track, and may even offer passengers a ride. From time to time, visitors from other miniature railways bring their locomotives to our facility and these can be seen on our layout.
Please watch the Latest News page for any information about our visitors and their locomotives.
