Southern Ontario's Most Scenic Rail Tour!
Winter, spring, summer or fall, the Credit Valley Explorer is southern Ontario's premiere tour train experience. Each season offers unique views and different tour train services through the Credit Valley and Hills of Headwaters in the heart of Ontario's Greenbelt.
Known for rolling hills, deep valleys, unsurpassed fall colours and being the headwaters of four major river systems, the Hills of Headwaters region provides a wonderful backdrop for the Credit Valley Explorer's journey.
Enjoy assigned seating in reclining first-class seats, constantly-changing views from large picture windows and snack or meal service with complimentary refreshments served by friendly onboard attendants, all in a comfortable climate-controlled environment. Tours include interpretive commentary and a souvenir mile-by-mile printed tour guide.
Scenic highlights include the 1,146 foot long railway trestle bridge spanning the Credit Valley and the Forks of the Credit river, and the Forks of the Credit Provincial Park at Cataract. Most mid-day scenic tours make a rest stop in the village of Inglewood to let passengers enjoy the charms of this quaint rural community.
All tours are operated by advance reservation only and early bookings are recommended.
Travelling over a rail route established 138 years ago along the edge of the Niagara Escarpment, the 74km adventure aboard classic rail cars is sure to be a memorable experience!
The Credit Valley Explorer operates over the tracks of the Orangeville Brampton Railway, and shares the rail line with freight trains and as such adheres to a strict schedule. All tours are round-trip, departing from Orangeville unless otherwise indicated on a tour description.
The Orangeville station building at 49 Townline opens for passenger check-in beginning 30 minutes prior to the scheduled boarding time. Parking is in the paved area and overflow gravel area south of the station.
