Iron Horse Park
The miniature trains, track and landscape at Iron Horse Park represent the Canadian Pacific Railway (CPR) from the prairies to the coast. Take the 1.6km interpretive journey aboard one of the 1/8th scale diesel or steam locomotives at the park and get a feeling of what the railway was like in Western Canada during the pioneer days. The journey will take you over hills, across trestles and through tunnels across the varied landscape.
Snacks and souvenirs can be found in the full size replica of a CPR station on site. Picnic tables on site provide a place for small family gatherings.
Smoking, Pets, Alcoholic Beverages and Private BBQ's or Hibachis are not permitted on the site on public run days.
The park is owned and operated by the Alberta Model Engineering Society, which was incorporated in 1971. Anyone who wants to volunteer is welcome to come and put their skills to work by helping create and maintain a unique and special place within the community. The park is a work is progress with big ideas to add a small scale farmstead, town and industries typical to the journey.

We wish to thank all our patrons and hope you will spread the word to your family and friends about the fun you had at Iron Horse Park this summer. Even though we are no longer open to the public, volunteer opportunities are still available as there are several projects underway before temperatures get too cool. Please see our Volunteers page for details.
Our next Open to the Public day will be our annual "Frostbite Run" on Family Day in February, 2016. Come out and experience a train journey through snow banks (if we have snow) and enjoy a cup of hot chocolate, weather permitting (not colder than -15 or so). Check back here for more info as Family Day gets closer.
If you don't want to brave the cold on Family Day, why not come and see us at Supertrain 2016 and take a short free ride indoors. More info will be posted here as it becomes available.
We look forward to seeing everyone again for our 2016 Run Season.
