We enjoyed the scenery. Was nice to sit back and relax. The conductor was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Took some killer photos of the fall colors at the "stop", especially when the engine was coming back. Will be putting our coins in a shadow box...More

We have been here multiple times the children enjoy it the employees are friendly and kind but the train ride is very short due to the bridge washing out some years back so not worth the price

In all our years of traveling to Eureka Springs for a fall getaway, we had never "ridden the rails." It was fun to take the 2-1/2-mile return at the very end of the season in a 1925 commuter car full of other intrepid travelers. The...More

We enjoyed the dinner trip. I wish we had done the excursion instead so we could hear the guided tour by the conductor. Lots of cool stuff to see at the train station too. Definitely a fun little trip back in time.

A fun and relaxing train ride with a delicious lunch! The waitress was friendly, the food was delicious, and the scenery was beautiful. Before or after the train ride, there's a lot to look at in the yard behind the station, and a gift store...More

The conductor was very informative and the ride was beautiful. I would not recommend for younger children. The ride was too long and to keep their attention. The adults, especially my mom and aunt that are in their 70’s enjoyed the trip.

I really don't remember the cost of the very short train ride but it was more than the ride was worth. There are no accommodations for any handicapped folks that I recall. Basically the ride was really forgettable.

The train operates April thru October. Since the winter months are not that active in this area, a lot of attractions close by the first of November.
