A wonderful trip in a vintage train across the southern Saskatchewan prairie. Well organized and includes a typical prairie style supper including pie for dessert.

Southern Prairie Railway offers a variety of heritage train rides from Ogema to check out one of very few surviving and intact grain elevators at Horizon. The main carriage is a beautifully restored 1922 Pullman car. Plus there's an airy baggage car for overflow, a bonus on very hot summer days. This is a great family excursion, with a very convivial feel. The train leaves from a restored CPR station and museum at Ogema. The trip is very popular, so it pays to book ahead on line. The staff (conductor, tour guide and so on) are all real pros, full of great information and really helpful. This is an ideal activity to combine with a visit to the Ogema Deep South Pioneer Museum. Train tickets also get you a 10 percent discount at a local restaurant.

Wow we took the settlers supper train tour on the Southern Prairie Railway fro Ogema to Horizon.
Great 45 min train ride , then an amazing prairie supper in an old abandoned church in an old town.
Meal was great , staff was super friendly and the ride in an old Pullman car was great.

Highly recommend take a ride on one of the trips ( check website/Facebook.

We had always talked about going on the train and finally we did it. Weather was great, the conductor and narrator-Carole were wonderful people. We did the tour to Horizon elevator, which we were very familiar with after 25 years of working in an elevator. We too didn't know about the museum which was unfortunate as we could have been t Ogema earlier, that is the only complaint.

My family and I had a wonderful time riding this heritage train. The ride was relaxing and the guides were informative. The stop at the grain elevator and office was interesting and the view the whole way was gorgeous. Renewed my appreciation of our prairie landscape. We also saw lots of wildlife! It was interesting wandering through the train station in Ogema and seeing all the historic artifacts. This is an experienced enjoyed by young and old. I would highly recommend it!
