South Dakota - Historic Prairie Village

Madison, SD - The village is surrounded by 2 miles of railroad track for the Prairie Village, Herman & Milwaukee Railroad. Buy a ticket to ride one of our trains which run every Saturday at 2:00 p.m. throughout the season, during Railroad Days, the Steam Threshing Jamboree and by special arrangement for groups.

The railroad began with the purchase of an 0-4-0T narrow gauge locomotive from Earl Grice of Mankato, Minnesota in 1969. The Whilimine Victoria No. 7 was built by Orenstein & Koppel in 1927 in Berlin. In 1976 a group of men organized the Historic Dakota Central Railroad and acquired the locomotive, No. 29 (0-6-0). The most recent acquired locomotive is No. 11 (0-4-0T), built in 1924 by Alco at the Cooks Works in Pennsylvania. Also features one of the last remaining chapel railroad cars, the “Emmanuel”.
