Nothing like a train ride thru the prairie. You get to see ranches, deer, antelope, get robbed by outlaws and have a fantastic dinner to boot.

My wife and I had a great time on this! The food was good, the staff was friendly and attentive and the view was all we'd hoped for. The "Hold-Up" was worth it just to watch the horsemanship. My best advice is that when you...More

We had an excellent time on the Charlie russell chew choo. Great entertainment. Good food. Our servers Jennifer and Colton made the experience even better with their exceptional service especially for my niece who was celebrating her birthday. Well worth the trip!

This dinner train was a great time with our group of 30. We had 5 kids ages 4-12 and they loved it too. Food was very good as well as the entertainment. It's a bit pricey but I believe a portion of the proceeds goes...More

You can't beat the scenery on this up and back ride through the Fergus county country side. The prime rib dinner is tasty. There is a bar with wine and beer. Unlike other dinner trains there is a drama that unfolds outside the train of...More

You have to find your own transportation to the train. Its only about ten miles out of town to the boarding station

No. Small Montana town; everybody drives. Short 8-10 mile drive on paved road. Very easy to find. Will need rental car or own transportation as no flights within 100 miles.
