Iron Horse Park

About us - What is 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, and Alcoholic Beverages 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 farm stead, town and industries typical to the journey.
