Little Prince Steam Engine

CHOO-CHOO! Big news folks- The Little Prince will be up and running for FREE this Thanksgiving weekend from 11 am-3 pm on Oct 9, 10, and 11th!

“Oh boy have we missed all of you!” said Tracy Calogheros, CEO of the Exploration Place AND the Fort George Railway. “We aren’t yet ready to open the Museum but we wanted to bring the Little Prince to the community for Thanksgiving, so we are offering free rides this weekend.”
In order to ensure everyone’s safety, we will be adhering to social distancing, mask-wearing and hand sanitizing with the Museum team sanitizing the passenger cars in between rides. Passengers will be asked to secure their Eventbrite tickets in advance and to show up no more than 10 minutes early for their time slot. Family groups will be seated together with an empty seat left between family “bubbles.”

Passengers should self-screen and not attend the event if they are a) experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19, b) have returned from travel outside of Canada in the last 14 days, or c) you are required to self-isolate.

“We are following a strict Covid Protocol which will require all passengers, 5 years and up, to wear masks while in line and while riding,” said Calogheros. “We will be providing tickets via Eventbrite in 15-minute increments and there will be NO walk-ups for rides.”
A HUGE thank you goes out to our fabulous Engineers and the Museum staff team, the City of Prince George, Johnston Meier Insurance Agency, Prince Sheet Metal, VanValve, A+B Rail, and the Technical Safety Authority for their donations, support and assistance as we worked to get to a place where this is possible for this year. Thank you in advance to the public for their understanding and support of safety protocols.
