Nope. That’s not a typo! The mayor and council of Big Valley met and decreed that Big Valley will be in the running for Pinkest Little Town in the West 2016 and is encouraging businesses to get involved as well. To help them, Alberta Prairie Steam, the tourist steam engine powered train that runs from Stettler to Big Valley is going pink!
This is crazy! This is so exciting! A pink train! I think we’ll hit the news with that one!
And that gets me to thinking: on that day, rather than riding somewhere, might we be able to become Pink Bandits and help the outlaws hold up the train? Oh! Oh! Second thought: wouldn’t it be fun to have our Pink Bandits rob the robbers who robbed the train? Hahahahaha! (None of this is a promise … but it is a definite threat! I’ll be following up on it.)
We ride Big Valley on August 25th. I’m thinking you’ll not want to miss this!
