Experience Stunning Colours On An Ontario Train Ride This Fall

Fall Train Ride Ontario

All aboard! You can experience stunning hues of oranges, yellows and browns on an Ontario train ride this fall.

The Waterloo Central Railway lets you travel back in time with its authentic heritage train ride through Woolwich Township and Waterloo Region’s Mennonite farm country.

The historic rail line, which has been in service since the 1880s, offers stunning views throughout the autumn months.

Throughout the ride, you can take in breathtaking views of the changing leaves, picturesque countryside and beautiful farming landscape.

The regular train rides are a roundtrip journey, which is around 1 hour and 45 minutes long and will return to the same track that you left.

However, if you’re looking for more of an adventure, you can purchase a Hopper day pass, where you can get off at one of their stops, like St. Jacobs.

You can stroll through the village and even have a nice lunch, before hopping back on the train and returning to where you started.

You can view the full train schedule and pricing on the company’s website. Pricing varies, but an adult coach ticket is around $25.

For all those Christmas lovers, the station also has some holiday-themed rides you can enjoy during the colder months, such as Santa’s Countryside Ride and Santa’s Christmas Caboose.
