We had about 60 family members on the dinner train last night. Lots of fun! Great views. Helpful servers and decent food— large quantity although some issues with burned potatoes and overdone steak. Fun cowboys and dancing girls. This is about 4.5-5 hours — and...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.
