It is a 30 to 40 min drive out of Lewistown to get to the destination - they gave us a map but, of course, we got lost. So the directions are not totally Bomb Proof. We did stop and ask directions from a very friendly farmer as he was entering a local watering hole who showed us where we took a wrong turn (or more accurately failed to make a turn) and we made it in plenty of time. The tickets we paid for were the VIP tickets and we were under the assumption there was a seperate car designated for VIP passengers - we were wrong. We were also suppose to get, as part of the VIP package a t-shirt and other extra items which was to include a disposable camera for each ticket holder - none of us got one. Which didn't really matter because we all brought our own cameras. THIS WAS THE ONLY COMPLAINT . Once we boarded (advanced boarding was also a perk of the VIP pkg) and settled in we were whisked away over old time wooden trestles, tunnels long (but not to long) and dark and some of the most wonderful scenery around. We witnessed a glorious sunset on the range as well as the deer and the antelope playing - ok no antelope but a whole pot load of bounding mule deer and birds of all kinds. The meal served was passable - prime rib, potatoes, roll and dessert. The staff were all absolutely fabulous and answered all questions - even the dumb ones (questions that is). The train was chased and robbed, and we watched as they battled among themselves over the loot which included several shootings and a hanging. Above all there was laughter, song by a local musician and literal dancing in the aisles by who ever was moved. It was a great time and I would definitely recommend it.
