Description: 
These historic trains operate on a private right of way that extends northwards to the city boundary of St. Thomas next to the Parkside Secondary School. Historic diesel locomotives from the 1940’s and 50’s pull the train at a leisurely pace on the trips. The coaches on the regular rides are former cabooses that have been converted into both open and closed cars. Closed coaches are heated in cool weather. There are three different destinations depending on the day and time of your choosing. One destination of the trains is the quaint 1923 Union flag stop station, where the little stream full of watercress wanders by. Union is also the destination of all trains to meet the Easter Bunny and the Santa Express. Some 3:00 pm trains stop at the railroad display equipment located at Whytes Park where you can tour our 1929 snowplow and a 1967 caboose plus other rail equipment. North of Whytes the train passes fields of farm crops then back yard flower gardens, as local residents old and young come out to wave as we pass by. Arriving at Parkside the engine changes ends for the return trip to Port Stanley.
