One Week Notice
Wheatland Express transports thousands of guests aboard its train each year. Our tours are in high demand, and as such, we require the media to provide a minimum of one week’s notice when planning visits and either live or taped segments. Providing this notice will help the Wheatland Express provide uninterrupted service to our guests, and allow our staff the opportunity to respond to requests associated with the story/segment. The more notice given, the better equipped the railway is to meet each request.
