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.

  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!
