WELCOME TO FORT STEELE'S RAILWAY COMPANY!
TRAIN OPERATES JULY 1ST - LABOUR DAY SUNDAY EVERY YEAR
The Fort Steele Railway company operates Fort Steele’s steam train ride. The ride is an astonishing experience, putting you in the seats of earlier adventurers who saw this spectactular countryside for the first time more than 100 years ago. The train leaves the Fort Steele Station for a 20 minute circuit stopping halfway at our viewing platform that offers a unique perspective of the townsite of Fort Steele and of the Kootenay and St Mary Rivers.
The Fort Steele Steam Railway is an operating museum which interprets the experience of branch-line rail travel to the logging, mining and ranching communities of the East Kootenays. In addition to riding on the steam train, visitors are invited to look at the historic railway equipment and stationary steam engines displayed outside the engine house. Our vintage locomotive “1077” is a source of fascination for our visitors and for Hollywood: it has been used in several movies shot north of the border.
SUMMER TRAIN SCHEDULE
2020 Season Train Departure Times:
The train is scheduled to run daily during our summer season, however, please note that our engine is an authentic steam locomotive from 1923 and requires special attention and care.
