This is truly the embodiment of "the little engine that could." Adults as well as children loved this little train and its driver. The one-hour town tour includes all the main attractions of Helena. Highly recommend for everyone

Tour takes about 1 hour and starts from in front of the Montana Historical Society which is right across from the State Capital building. The tour gives a good overview of the town of Helena as well as the history of Helena.

Sadly I think the answer is no for the regular tour. However is you call 406-442-1023 they might be able to arrange it. I do know they have other tour options and buses. Google the Last Chance Tours for a brochure.

It is about 4 miles to the tour train & very easy to get to with main roads & the interstate nearby.
