The Prairie Dog Central Railway - Tales from the Homestead
Sit back, relax and listen as our onboard historian recounts stories of his family’s journey to Manitoba and their farming life throughout the generations. The stopover at Grosse Isle is rich with activities, watch as wool blankets are made, take a wagon ride up the trail or browse the farm equipment on display. Enjoy the stories told by the historian as he recounts memories with poems and old photographs. Bring along your own picnic or indulge in a freshly prepared hotdog or smokie, leaving space for a made from scratch baked treat or ice cream. Take a stroll through the beautifully restored heritage buildings before we head back to the city. Don’t miss out on this extremely popular event, there is something for everyone today!
