About Us

With headquarters in Forestburg, Alberta, the Battle River Railway is a fully functioning short rail line with a super fun twist.  Exchanging the usual boxcars for a beautiful vintage passenger car, The Friends of the Battle River Railway are delighted  to offer a number of theme based, day exursions throughout the year.  Each unique theme is carefully tailored to provide fun filled and a memorable experience for those with a hankering to ride the rails.

All Aboard!

Thanks to the Edmonton Journal for making this fantastic interactive tour of our rural shortline.

  1. Hi Jan,

    Here is the information to you requested:
    Old fashioned fun is the name of the game for this excursion. Ride the rails from Forestburg to Heisler. Your afternoon will be full of events like the three-legged race, candy toss, and chicken coop bingo. Dress your family in vintage clothing at the photo booth. Babies to Grandma’s and Grandpa’s will love this one!
    Depart Forestburg at 1:00 pm. Return from Heisler at 5:00 pm.

    Also, you can find information about all our excursions in the events section on our Friends of the Battle River Railway Facebook page.

    Let me know if I can help you with anything else. We hope you can join us, this will be a fun one!
