About the Standard Gauge Railway

Heritage Park unveiled its railway in 1964 to have a working example of the means of transportation that had the greatest effect on the history of western Canada.

Heritage Park’s nearly 30 piece collection of rolling stock includes locomotives, tenders, coaches, flatcars, boxcars, cattle cars and other specimens from the Canadian Pacific Railway, the Canadian National Railway, Morrissey, Fernie & Michel, Pacific Coast Terminals and Northern Alberta Railway, all built between 1882 and 1949. Heritage Park’s railway uses 100-pound rail on a standard gauge track (four feet, 8 inches wide), and its main loop is 4,300 feet long.
