Very enjoyable 50-minute railway trip to Beeton and back. Conductor takes you back in history to understand our past & the importance of rail in spurring growth of Ontario in the 1800's. These volunteers enjoy sharing the Simcoe South Railway's history with the passengers and...More

Fun chugging steam train ride for the whole family with breeze coming in through open windows. Have lunch at the Taste of Freedom next to the railway station and go for the train ride.
