July 4th Celebration, 1880 Train

July 3, 2019 @ 11:00 am - July 6, 2019 @ 6:00 pm

July 4th Celebration – July 3-6

What better way to celebrate the USA than by taking a ride on an authentic steam train through the beautiful Black Hills.

Enjoy a good ‘ole western shootout on the 6:45 pm departure July 3, 5 & 6. These departures sell out fast, so make your reservations today!

Experience an old west shootout aboard the 1880 Train! The shootout begins at the Hill City Station where a few bad guys board the train and hide their treasure. The train is stopped by cowboys and “held up” halfway between Keystone and Hill City. It’s a good thing the sheriff is in town!

To see the shootout, you must ride the designated Hill City to Keystone departure.

“Special Seating” for the shootout is available for these departures. These seats provide the best views of the shootout and are located in the middle three passenger cars, Red Fern, Oreville, and Harney Canyon. These seats are only available to those who begin their ride in Hill City at 6:45pm.
