Contents

Southern Prairie Railway offers train tours that travel from Ogema to Pangman, Saskatchewan and Horizon, Saskatchewan. The tours operate on weekends from May to October. Chartered trips are also available.

The centrepiece of their operation is a fully restored 1912 CP Rail train station. The station was moved to Ogema from Simpson, Saskatchewan in 2002, as the original station was removed in 1960s. The feature engine is a 1945 GE "44 tonner" diesel locomotive purchased in 2010 from Conway Scenic Railroad in North Conway, New Hampshire. Also purchased in 2010, the 1922 Pullman passenger car arrived from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and received a top to bottom restoration. Staff and volunteers are also working to restore a 1952 CP Rail baggage car and a caboose to join the fleet.
