Deadwood Model Train

Black Hills, Deadwood

Finding Deadwood's Model Train

As you stroll down Deadwood’s Main Street there are many sights and sounds to take in, but did you know there is a model train?

The train is located in the basement of the Bad Lands Casino, just across the street from the Mineral Place.  Checkout a map of Deadwood to find the location.


This incredibly detailed  diorama is definitely worth a visit.  Take the time to look at the details of  scenes and you’ll know the builders has a sense of humor.  I especially enjoy the bear sneaking up on a preoccupied man.

If you happen to be a train enthusiast, there are plenty of additional locations in the Black Hills you may want to visit.  Near the open pit in Lead, there is a compressed air powered locomotive.  And the South Dakota state railroad museum is down in Hill City.
