Portage la Prairie Model Railroad Club and the Canadian Pacific Railway Heritage Park and Interpretive Centre, are holding their annual Train Days Celebration this weekend. The fun begins at 10:00AM and continues until 4:00PM at the historic CP Rail Station in Portage La Prairie.
There will be plenty of exhibits in the station, and there's always the delicious barbecue that they serve! Of course, there will be lots of trains! Portage La Prairie is one of the few places in Canada where the CP and CN mainlines run just a few yards away from each other. It's a great place for rail fanning! Combining that with Railway Days, and you've got yourself a great way to spend what promises to be a warm and sunny Saturday in Manitoba!
It's easy enough to find. Just drive down Saskatchewan Avenue in Portage and turn south on 3rd. street NE. You can't miss it!
