Prairie Dog Central Railway – Tales from the Homestead


August 13, 2022

Steam Locomotive

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 or take a wagon ride up the trail. 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!
