Ride the Moraine Train!

Come hear the clickety-clack of the track and enjoy a ride through history ...

If you enjoy train rides though the country and small towns, then you should check out the Moraine Train, run by the York-Durham Heritage Railway. It is a 20 km (12 mile) ride between Stouffville and Uxbridge (Stouffville is 40 minutes north of Toronto), winding through the Oak Ridges Moraine. It takes an hour each way, with a short stop in Uxbridge.

Gord and I did this with Single Horizons this afternoon. There were about 30 of us in our group (though both train cars were full).

The changing leaves were beautiful

Afterwards, most of us went to the Lion of Stouffville Pub for supper.

Teena this looks like a fantastic day. Train trips are such fun. Hope it wasn't too cold of a day to enjoy it. :-)

This looks like a wonderful thing to experience...I haven't been on a rain for about 4 years...and then it was just to go down to San Diego to see a play, and then back here to L.A. that night,
But this is really a great idea to have an outing and get a delicious train ride and see the coubtryside. Fabulous! Loved the pictures!

Awesome...it is things like this that I miss about living in Toronto! There were so many cool things to do that were just a short car ride away. *sigh* However, I do not miss the 401 one, single bit!
