Fodor's Review

Discover the vistas that inspired Western artist Charlie Russell on the Charlie Russell Chew-Choo, a vintage 1950s-era train that travels on the old Milwaukee Road tracks through some of the most beautiful and remote landscapes in the state. The tour, which departs from Kingston, about 10 mi northwest of Lewiston, lasts 3½ hours and includes a prime-rib dinner and a cash bar. On weekends before Christmas the Chew-Choo transforms into a prairie Polar Express, and there are special Oktoberfest and New Year's Eve runs.
