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 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.

Please Note: The Charlie Russell Chew Choo staff is taking precautions to make sure we are abiding by all required social distancing guidelines, especially those that pertain to restaurants. We have Wild West-themed masks and have adjusted seating arrangements to keep passengers at a safe distance from one another. We are working closely with our local sanitarian and other health inspectors to make sure those who ride stay comfortable and healthy.
