1880 Train - Review

There is no better way to see the black hills of South Dakota than from the windows of a vintage steam train. This train ride is basically of 20 miles and is one of the best things you can do to relax and explore. It is basically a round trip from Keystone and Hill City. There is a narrative constantly going on to keep rail enthusiasts of all ages engrossed and occupied. There is no experience like this in the whole of the Black Hills. Also try to catch other train adventures like Cody the Magician, Steam Seminar and Old West Shootouts.

1880 Train, Custer Reviews

  • What a fun way to end our stay in the Black Hills!! So relaxing and beautiful sights!! Had an amazing tour guide (Carol I believe) who had so many neat tidbits to share. I agree with another review, go online and order your tickets in advance. Makes it much smoother and you have a much better selection of seats. A word of caution if you don't care for loud train whistles don't choose the first two cars or the back two cars. Definitely would do this again!!

  • Very well worth the trip. You get to see lots of scenery and wildlife. We seen deer, turkey, woodchuck, farm animals to dogs. Has a narration going on telling history so very informative. We did a round trip and was well worth the time. Just love the old steam engines puffing away. They sell snacks and drinks on the train. We had a good time as a family. Good for kids and adults.

  • Great ride, awesome staff. I really enjoyed this hour-long, one way trip from Hill City back to Keystone. Definitely order your tickets at least a day in advance. I'm glad that we did. It was raining the day that we rode the train, and we originally had an open car. However, we arrived early and the staff was very pleasant to work with him and getting our open car seats changed to an enclosed car. This will definitely be another stop for us when we visit the Hills again.

  • I have always wanted to ride a steam train and this was a good place to do just that. To take in more of the adventure, we rode in an open car. It was a fun time had by everyone on the train. You learn a lot about the area called the Black Hills. You learn how some things were named, how the early pioneers of the area got along with the environment, and how painstaking it was for them to cut through the rock to make a path for the railroad. I would recommend it to anyone who is contemplating and has not yet signed up.

  • Great experience. Reading older reviews after we'd ridden makes me glad they do assigned seats now...sounds like that used to be an issue. We rode from keystone to hill City, walked around town, had dinner, then rode back. There was an old west shoot out as part of the return trip. My kids enjoyed it (with proper warning and assurance it was all a ''play"). Some guns were louder than others, but everybody got up to take a bow in the end. I'd recommend taking a ride with this added bonus. All around great time!
