The 1880 Train ride is a two-hour, narrated 20-mile round trip ride between Hill City snd Keystone South Dakota in the beautiful Black Hills. Passengers view vistas of Harney Peak, mining encampments and participate in good old-fashioned fun. Trains follow the original route of the Chicago Burlington and Quincy Railroad laid down in the late 1880s to service the mines and mills between Hill City and Keystone.
The Black Hills Central Railroad is the oldest continuously operating tour railroad in the nation and operates three steam and two diesel engines throughout the season. One of our steam engines is close to 100 years old!

"The trip was wonderful. All of us had a wonderful time. We did take the train ride and got great pictures, the granddaughters saw lots of wildlife. wish we would have stayed a couple of days more, there was so much more to see and do. The girls were six and seven and didn't seem to run out of energy. I plan to come back again. I will use your service for that trip. You were well informed and gave me good advice on what to see and were to stay.
Thanks. Linda Jones " - Linda Jones

"THIS WAS FUN. THE KIDS LOVED IT, ESPECIALLY SINCE WE SAT IN THE OPEN CAR WITH THE WOODEN SEATS JUST LIKE IT WOULD HAVE BEEN IN THE OLD WEST. THE ONLY THING I SUGGEST IS ONLY RIDE ONE WAY IF POSSIBLE. EVERYONE WAS RESTLESS ON THE WAY BACK SINCE IT IS THE SAME ROUTE." - ELAINE GOWRYLUK
Dates: August 30 - September 1, 2008
"We loved it. I traveled with my husband, and two teenage children, with my parents. We rode from Hill City in the open cars and then on the way back we switched to the enclosed cars. My parents liked the enclosed cars better, more luxurious and padded seats, but my kids liked the open cars. So there's something for everyone!" - Deanna Rice
