Featured in The Fabulous Prairies – May 25, 2010
The Prairie Dog Central Railway located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada is a short line railway and it is one of the oldest regularly scheduled vintage operating trains in North America. It takes many volunteer members both on the train, at the station and in the shop to run the Prairie Dog Central Railway every operating day.
A Canadian Heritage Railway Station has been restored to a condition which provides passengers with a sense of its history while at the same time providing functional utility with ticket agent cage and a souvenir and gift shop, the Freight Shed. Old luggage, cream and milk cans, wrought iron benches and a baggage wagon on the platform add to the historical ambiance. The floor plan of the station includes two waiting rooms, a station agent’s office for ticket sales, and a baggage and freight room.
The Prairie Dog Central Railway began operations in regular public service on July 11, 1970.
