The ride goes through the woods and then comes back the same way. There is not a lot to see other than the trees. But all that is beautiful. Kids will love this. There are not many "ride" attractions in the area. I have been traveling to this town for many years. I would suggest if you are visiting for... More

We really enjoyed having lunch on this train excursion! The food was most excellent as we journeyed for approximately a half hour and then returned in reverse on the same track. It would have been nicer if the train had made a loop around instead of going forward and then backward on the same line of track, but overall we... More

My husband, son and I visited Eureka Springs in July. We LOVE train rides and thought we would give this a try. We thoroughly enjoyed walking the train yard and taking pictures with all of the cars and engines...and the old train station is really neat. The train ride itself was a bit of let down though. You literally pull... More

The Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway is a must see for Train enthusiasts, young or old if you like trains then you will enjoy a stop at the Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway. They are closed from November first until Spring. So plan your trip accordingly. The last week of October is our favorite time to visit.

Trains have always had a fascination for me, and photography is one of my hobbies. While we did not have time on this trip to ride the train, just walking around the yard is worth the visit. The original train station building is very interesting. The yard has several vintage steam locomotives and other rail cars. It also has a... More

Dinner was great. Some of the best food, and such an interesting welcoming atmosphere. I had the trout, it was very good. Others in our party had the prime rib, also very good. My family comes here every year and has dinner on the train

Love visiting this place. Has the feel of walking back into time. Lots of old trains, passengers cars and an old depot. Kids of all ages will love this and if you're a photographer like me, you could spend hours there and not be bored.

This is not an exciting or long train trip, but my wife and I both enjoyed it very much. The train is vintage, steam-era railroad equipment which travels slowly through beautiful north central Arkansas. At its' northern terminus, the trail turns around (you'll have to ride it to find out how!) and returns along the same track. During the turnaround,... More

This was a really fun experience for all ages. The route was pretty and the conductor is really good and knows his history. All the staff were great and a pleasure to be around.
