2014 Christmas Weekends

December 3rd, 2014 by jubilee No comments »

We’re sorry to report that there will be no nighttime Christmas train and lights again this year. The Taylor family is still working on resurrecting the Christmas Lights at the Taylors’, and the AVR will look forward to running Christmas trains again in the future when this happens. It will not be this year, unfortunately.

However, there is some GOOD NEWS!

Weekend Winter Trains

We will be running the weekend before and the weekend after Christmas, if you would like to come for a ride!  The AVR is located at 3001 Roblin Blvd., immediately west of Assiniboine Park.

The dates and times are as follows:

December 20 and 21, and December 27 and 28, train rides will be given from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Rides are $2 for those 3 and up (kids 2 and under ride free).  We also sell a 12 ride pass for $20, which can be used at our summer open houses.

Come and celebrate the season with us!


Edit Your Bookmark for the AVR

June 19th, 2014 by jubilee No comments »

If you notice that the web page looks radically different, that’s because it is!

The AVR website is now found at http://www.assiniboinevalleyrailway.org/.  If you got here by going to the old website, you might want to update your bookmarks with the new address – easy to remember, slightly harder to type.

All the old content and pictures has been archived and we will make it available here, but are using some easier to maintain web software now.

Club members, if you would like to be able to post your own articles, contact treasurer@assiniboinevalleyrailway.org for details on how to login and post.  All you need is a web browser!

Open Rail Events

May 25th, 2014 by jubilee No comments »

The first Open Rail  (Public Open House) event of 2014 will be held on June 14-15.  We’re hoping for beautiful weather to share the trains with you!  Come one, come all!  For more information, see the Events page.

Signs of New Life

February 16th, 2014 by jubilee No comments »

This long winter is not quite done with us, but the Assiniboine Valley Railway is showing some signs of life.   We have held the Annual General Meeting for the year, and have plans for this year’s activites.  We will be holding (5) Open Houses this summer, and there will be plenty of work to do.

The club has decided not to maintain a phone number, but e-mail, cell phone, and postal contact information will be updated on the Contact page.  So if you try and ring the old number and find it disconnected, it doesn’t mean we’ve gone away – come out and see for yourself at a Members’ Work Day or Public Open House.
