TRX Train Tour

Back in the old days we ran either buses or trolleys through the pasture which would sometimes get stuck due to a rain storm or excessive standing water. The Trains have now eliminated those issues.

Way back in 2002 while trying to think of a way to have a more efficient Bison tour, Dan Thiel, Ron Thiel, and Wes Ammons went way out on a limb and thought about how cool it would be to have a real train running on rail while doing the Bison tour. At the time, we thought the idea was more of a "pie in the sky" and not realistic yet here we are today with an array of different trains for different uses. Come on out and join us for a tour sometime.

  • 1st unit went into operation in 2004
  • We currently have 6 locomotives
  • We added a new enclosed 90 passenger car
  • Tours run everyday of the year except Christmas Day
  • Trains run on standard gauge rail
  • Handicap accessible
  • Train crosses into Colorado during tour
  • Group tours are welcome
  • Adults $12.00 | Ages 4-12 $6.00

    Pony Rides

    Pony rides are for the younger cowboys who aren't yet ready for the larger horses. Located at Kid Corral on the east side of the Terry Ranch Trading Post. Rides last for approximately for 15 minutes.

    Some places are only catering to adults while others only cater to the younger at heart. The Terry Bison Ranch tries to cater to all groups. This allows the adults to not only have their own activities, but allows the younger people to experience some fun, too. Kid Corral has a large area dedicated just to them. Not only can you ride a pony, there are other carnival type rides to enjoy while they are there. This is especially great for birthday parties or outings. Call one of our sales personnel to set one up.

    • Can take out up to 5 kids at a time
    • Gazebo located right next to Kid Corral
    • An array of other activities
    • Horseshoe pits and roping dummies
