This unique building boasts 20 ft. high floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views, 200 feet across, letting in lots of natural light. Up to five heritage trains can be moved in and out to customize the size of the event space, from being more intimate to more open. There are even seven sets of grand wooden train doors that can be opened up letting the outdoors-in which is spectacular on a sunny day. There is also an upper indoor/outdoor mezzanine patio with mountain views for a dinner or evening hors-d'oeuvres.
Any of our restored vintage dining cars such as the British Columbia or Alberta car can be used for a private dinner or small meeting space, like a bridal preparation room or a speakers green room.
The Mac Norris heritage train station at the Heritage Park is also available for special occasions and meetings. There are two sides to the station; the Heritage Tea Room and the Station Waiting Area. The Waiting Area can be set up boardroom style while the tea room is ideal for a sit-down meal or buffet. On a nice day, a meal can be held on the outside station platform.
