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!

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.
