Train Engineer Experience

See the power of driving the train!

Have you ever wondered what it looks like from the inside of the locomotive? 

Our Engineer Experience is the perfect adventure for any railroad enthusiast. Come along for a ride in the cab of one of our Diesel Locomotives with an authentic railroad Engineer. Get a first hand view of the rails from up high while you have the chance to ask questions about Waterloo Central Railway, it’s trains, its track and the unique Mennonite heritage that surrounds us. 

Your Engineer Experience lasts about 2 hours and afterwards you will leave with an Engineers hat, an authentic certificate, a small thank you token from us, and memories that will last a lifetime.
