Keewatin Rail which already operates the passenger trains to Pukatawagan is based in The Pas

Depends on the traffic though. Churchill trains have tourist traffic which may be dissuaded by a two seat ride.

Perhaps during Polar Bear Season...a month or so a year. Other than that....very little traffic to warrent a train between The Pas and Winnipeg.

Does Polar Bear season coincide with Northern Lights season?
