  • Took the kids on the Christmas Express. It was a fabulous ride. Lasted a little over an hour, and the family was served hot chocolate and cookies. The kids met Santa and got a magic Christmas bell. Really well organized and the elves were all really friendly. Beautiful scenery. Highly recommended. Bring a lap blanket if the temps are chilly.

  • Great!! We had 22 people in our group. My children with their children and some great grand children all got together. We came from Rapid City, Billings, Mt. And Georgia. Thank you for a wonderful memory made.

  • Beautiful mountain scene and historic train ride. Great information and view as you travel to Keystone and back. They delay long enough in Keystone to grab a quick bite to eat and browse the station there. Great old steam train, two thumbs up from us! *and it's handicap accessible

  • This was so worth the time and money. A beautiful trip through the blank hills. Are lunch in keystones. Had many different places to choose from. And ice cream places too. Then the ride back with commentary about the area and it's history. Just an easy, pleasing day. Wonderful addition to any travel plan for a no hustle slower paced attraction for all ages for sure.

  • This was the highlight of our 7 day visit to the Black Hills. A wonderful train journey through the marvellous country side with the whistle blowing at every road junction. And the two towns Hill city and Keystone are great places to visit. So good was it we went back down the Old Hill City road the next day so we could film the superb sound of that engine and whistle.
