Last month, during my time in Edmonton, I went on the Alberta Prairie Railway excursion with my family, from Stettler to Big Valley. Shortly after I arrived in Alberta for my month-and-a-half long trip, I heard from my family as well as a few others that the Railway Excursions were a must-see while I was in town. With it only being a several hour drive outside of the city, we decided that this would be a really cool thing to do as a whole family. In fact, my cousins’ boyfriends came along with us, too.
When I arrived at the Stettler train station and saw the massive locomotive parked out front, I was floored. The front engine looked like something out of the Harry Potter films, and the colours of the train were the perfect fit for the gorgeous rolling plains that we would soon be moving through on our way to a buffet dinner.
