Yes, if you want to be guaranteed a train ride and at a specific time. There are a limited number of tickets available for this event. If you are unable to purchase your tickets online, please call the Railway Museum (613-283-5696) to purchase tickets.
How long is the ride?
We are thrilled to be offering longer rides! The rides are now approx. 2 km round trip. They leave from the station along the West track and head north to Cornelia St., switch to the East track and travel along the east side of the property and then back again.
I have a child 4 or under, where can I purchase tickets for them?
Children 4 years old and under do not need to pay for a ticket, but please be sure to reserve a ticket for them when purchasing your ticket. Tickets are required for ALL train riders.
What if I miss my scheduled train ride?
We request that you check-in at the front desk at least half an hour before your scheduled ride to pick up your train tickets. If you miss your scheduled ride time, we will do our best to put you on the next available train ride, but we cannot guarantee you a ride.
Don’t miss out! Purchase your tickets early!
