As with any railroad, motive power, passenger car assignments, schedules and fares are subject to change without prior notice. This includes unannounced substitution of diesel power for unexpected mechanical issues on steam locomotives.

The last train of the day from Keystone is always a one-way departure with no return option.

A return shuttle is offered on select mid-summer days for an additional $5 and can only be combined with the 6:15 train. Purchase of the shuttle can only be made in-person at the Keystone depot or by calling 605-574-2222. Car seats and purchase of a shuttle ticket are mandatory for all infants regardless of age. Shuttle seating is very limited and may only permit a single person of your party to return to Keystone for a vehicle while the others wait in Hill City.
