It was good except the food could of been better for the price we paid. The robbery was horrible, they should ride up on horse back like in olden days and jump on board and rob. The music was awesome. The ride itself was really good too

We spent a very pleasant, fun, and active day on and off the train. The picnic was excellant and the entertainment was a lot of fun. The 4 to 9 year olds react to the ongoing entertainment with a mix of belief/disbelief to the entertainment of the adults on the train. The ability to climb stairs onto and off the train is a must. There are lots of staff to assist but the train is not yet fully handicap enabled. they are working on this.

About Aspen Crossing


If Calgary is the Heart of the New West, the railroads were once the arteries that allowed it to thrive, flowing grain, livestock, and other lifebloods through Alberta's expansive prairies. Although the railroad's importance to the economy has since diminished, Aspen Crossing refuses to let the heritage fade away. On its own 14-mile section of preserved rail, the independent railroad leads 28-mile round trips aboard an authentic Parrish & Heimbecker locomotive replete with a caboose that once belonged to Calgary's Ogden Legion. Along the way, passengers learn firsthand about agriculture and the railroad while catching glimpses of historical grain elevators from either seated indoor cars or an open-air car (once used to haul scrap metal, which was needed to build the earliest hockey players' skates).

Besides the trips along the prairie, Aspen Crossing offers a variety of special tours, from sunset and stargazing tours to beer and wine tastings to theatrical performances in which the railcars become the setting for a realistic train robbery. Back at the station, flowers and plants fill a thriving garden, a gift shop stocks souvenirs and jars of homemade pickles, and waiters serve diners at a restaurant built into an 1887 Pullman dining car—once the private business car for Prime Minister John Diefenbaker—permanently parked onsite.
