Heber Valley Railroad Begins Summer Season
The historic Heber Valley Railroad has launched its summer season and is now offering train rides from Heber City down into Provo Canyon, along a very scenic route.
The railroad offers scheduled runs and also special events with themes that appear to families and groups. Here are quotes provided by the railroad:
The Heber Valley Railroad has created several specialty excursions, seasonal special events and activity trains. Scenic trains include the Provo Canyon Limited, the Lakeside Limited and the Deer Creek Express. Evening dinner excursions include our Comedy Murder Mystery and the Sunset BBQ Special, which run on alternating Saturday nights throughout the summer season. Activity trains include the Wilderness Zip Line, Raft ‘n Rails, Reins ‘n Trains and the new Raft ‘n Rails Sunset BBQ in the summer, and the Tube ‘n Train ride during the winter. A Day Out With Thomas is featured every Memorial Day Weekend; ghosts, goblins and pumpkins abound during the month of October aboard the popular Haunted Canyon and Pumpkin Patch trains. Remember too, during December, we offer our popular North Pole Express, Christmas train.
The Heber Valley Railroad has appeared in a number of motion pictures and was featured on television episodes of “Touched by an Angel” and “Promised Land.” In 1999, the Heber Valley Railroad purchased the “Movie Train.” Our steam engine and ten of our railroad cars have been featured in more than 35 motion pictures over the past 20 years. The “Movie Train” is a part of our regular operations, and you’re welcome to come visit and ride where movie stars once worked.
