About 1880 Train

1880 Train

This historical steam train experience is narrated and fun for railroad enthusiasts of all ages!

It's an activity like no other in the Black Hills. The two-hour, narrated 20-mile round trip between Keystone and Hill City gives passengers views of the vistas of Black Elk Peak (formerly 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!
