Black Hills Central Railroad

“The Black Hills Central Railroad operates three Baldwin steam locomotives:  the #7, the #104, and the #110.  Trains follow the original route of the CB&Q Railroad laid down in the late 1880s to service the mines and mills between Hill City and Keystone.  The two-hour, 20 mile round trip winds through the Black Hills National Forest.”

~Tourist Pamphlet for the Railroad

I love the west, the wild 1880’s ish west and adored this train ride.  I could happily ride across the country in a train like this…laugh if you will but I felt just like I was back in time.  I miss the area already…
