It is very unfortunate, but the Credit Valley Explorer has ceased operations. All railcars have been moved off site and the office is closed. The station is only operated as a shelter for GO Bus riders.

The Credit Valley Explorer Train ride was really nice, we were fortunate enough to have a beautiful sunny day to enjoy the ride. The hot lunch was excellent and the servers were very friendly. I would definitely do it again in a heartbeat.

We visited Orangeville a year ago (from Texas) which is how we learned about the train ride. So this time we booked our tickets well in advance and specifically chose the Sunday brunch ride. We were not disappointed! It was also my wife's first ever...More
