Southern Prairie Railway in Ogema
Experience a rail excursion similar to what pioneers of the 1920s would have experienced at the Town of Ogema. This exciting new adventure uses a renovated passenger car to take travellers back to the Age of Steel, when Canada’s fortunes depended on the movement of people and goods across our great nation. The train runs west along an old CPR branch line to Horizon Saskatchewan where you’ll have a guided tour of the grain elevator that still stands as mute sentinel guarding the Land of Living Skies. After your train trip, stroll down the Town of Ogema’s historic Main Street and visit the British America Gas Station, one of the only remaining corner stations in Western Canada, as well as the Fire Hall. This pioneer “village” includes 30 historic buildings from Ogema and surrounding communities as well as thousands of operating pieces of antique machinery and artifacts.
