Our 2 km, 2 foot mining track runs through our beautiful 10 acre park in the beautiful city of Whitehorse, Yukon. Our engines are genuine 1-cylinder 10 and 20 HP diesel mining engines called “Lokis” (“low-keys”), built in Austria by Jenbacher Werke. The passenger car has open sides and a canvas top with 6 rows of seats (fits approx. 20 people).

We are open from May 18th until September 1st (Labour Day) from 10AM to 5PM, 7 days a week. The train runs once every half an hour (dependent on number of passengers).

We also offer special run times for groups, weddings, family events, company gatherings or other special events.
