Steam Train & Badlands Tour
Steam Train Ride, Apple Cider Estates Tour &Tasting, Visit to Mars included!
Today's outing allows you to enjoy the fall colours and the countryside north of Toronto in York Region & Dufferin County.
We start off with a one hour train ride on an original steam train. Most likely our ride will be behind engine # 136, a Rogers 4-4-0 steam locomotive built in Paterson NJ in 1883. Wow... experience travel the way our ancestors did 131 years ago!
After our train ride I'm sure we'll all be thirsty so we will get to quench our thirst at an estate cidery that makes some amazing apple cider. We will get a tour of the cidery followed by a tasting of 3 of their ciders! The cidery is famous for it's home made breads and baked goods and you will be able to purchase some after the tour.
And we will finish our day with a visit to Mars. Well, OK, not actually the planet Mars, but to the Cheltenham Badlands, where erosion has created an area that closely resembles the surface of Mars! Amaze your friends with some cool photos.
