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.
