The York-Durham Heritage Railway is back up and running after having to delay their season due to tornado damage in the Spring. They have now planned numerous types of themed train trips this Fall and into the Christmas season.

You can ride comfortably in one of York-Durham Heritage Railway’s vintage trains to and from the Town of Uxbridge, through the beautiful Oak Ridges Moraine between Uxbridge and Stouffville.
