The Assiniboine Valley Railway rides again!

Clear your schedule! Cancel all your appointments! Tell your secretary (Oops! Make that "personal assistant" - we strive to be politically correct on this site) to hold all your calls! The Assiniboine Valley Railway will be holding an open house on the weekend of August 9th and 10th!

Please note that they have a new website, and a schedule of events, which you can access here. It has also been posted on The hours for the open house on Saturday is from 11:00AM to 5:00PM. The hours on Sunday are from 1:00PM to 5:00PM. It costs $2.00 to ride the rails, and it's worth every penny! Children under three years old can ride fro free. A 12 ride rail pass is available for $20, which is good at any AVR event.

The Assiniboine Valley Railway is located at 3001 Roblin Boulevard, right next to Assiniboine Park.


  1. Actually, this is their third open house this year. They had one in May and one in June. Our crack team of investigative reporters missed posting them, as they were looking at the old AVR website and their FB page, which hasn't been updated. You have to do a little digging to find their new website, which is linked on this post.
