The Alberni Pacific Railway is a heritage railway originating in Port Alberni, British Columbia.

The railway is powered by a 1929 Baldwin steam locomotive departing from the 1912 CPR Station. It uses rebuilt cabooses as passenger cars. The 35 minute excursions go to the McLean Mill National Historic Site.
