For over 30 years Port Stanley Terminal Rail has been operating tourist excursion trains from the historic station next to the King George lift bridge, at the harbor in Port Stanley.
The trains operate on a private right of way that extends northwards to the city boundary of St. Thomas next to the Parkside Secondary School. Historic diesel locomotives from the 1940ís and 50ís pull the train at a leisurely pace on the trips. The coaches on the regular rides are former cabooses that have been converted into both open and closed cars. Closed coaches are heated in cool weather.

There are several destinations for the rides. Our special event trains or charter trains can on some trips cover the entire line into St. Thomas, with a number of options available. Our regular scheduled trains destination is to our Whytes Park where a stop is made to tour our rail exhibits and pose for pictures with the fictional circus car. (See the photo below) During the months of July & August, the Saturday 11:00 am trains tour the line to St. Thomas & return.
Come ride the train and enjoy the scenery and occasional wild life along the way.
