Charlie Russell Chew Choo Dinner Train
Join us for a spectacular evening as we travel through the mountains and prairies of central Montana. Experience the beauty of the rolling hills, vast ranchlands and breathtaking sunsets of Big Sky Country. Wildlife abounds on this scenic 56 mile round trip journey, with a plentiful supply of antelope, eagles, deer, hawks and coyotes. Be sure to watch out for the masked bandits — rumor has it that hold-ups can occur when you least expect them!
Crossing two historic trestles and passing through a half mile long tunnel, the three and one-half hour trip in climate-controlled, non-smoking coaches includes a full course prime rib dinner and dessert, no-host cash bar and music by local area entertainers. VIP Packages include priority boarding, preferred seating, a complimentary drink with dinner, a T-shirt and cinch sack.
Your journey begins northwest of Lewistown and follows the route of the old Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul, and Pacific railroad to Denton, MT and back again. The train travels on a spur track that was built in 1912-1913 connecting Lewistown and Great Falls.
Train rides are available on scheduled weekends and may also be chartered for special events. Regular or VIP rates are available for both children and adults. Passengers should allow approximately 20 minutes of travel time to reach the loading station.
