We took the noon train raise out the ESNA railway. Enjoyed the view out the windows, and the people in our train car. No too crowded or noisy. Trip was a bit short I thought for the cost.

We took a regular train ride at noon (no meal) and our Engineer was so entertaining and informative! He had great stories and fascinating tales of railroad history. We even got to get off halfway through the ride and place coins on the track for the train to run over and flatten for souvenirs! The scenic view is alright (not... More

The museum was pretty interesting, and all of the antique equipment was an unexpected glimpse into the past. We dined on the dinner train and my husband and I had the prime rib, sad to say I wish we would have skipped the meal. The wait staff was very friendly and made the experience pleasurable. The steak wasn't prepared well... More

What a great place to visit and see how things were done in the mountains in the past. Magnificent collection of railroad artifacts. This was one of the larger collections of trains and train equipment that I have seen.

We went on excursion and enjoyed the scenery and the conductors stories. It doesn't go very far and wish it looped around but otherwise had a great time.

Was it the most exciting thing we've ever done? No, but it definitely wasn't the worst. It was an entertaining hour or so on an old train. If you're looking for fast-paced excitement take a ride on a roller coaster. If you want a relaxing and enjoyable experience, take a ride on the ESNA RR. The conductor was very knowledgeable... More

While the conductor of our very short adventure was fabulous, it is something we won't repeat in the future. With the exception of our conductor, the train ride was uneventful and somewhat boring.

1st time on the train. We were pleasantly surprised. It was interesting and a lot of fun. But what we didn't expect was the dinner was superb. The trout was excellent. We've had prime rib all over Eureka Springs and the prime rib on the train is by far the best in town. And not at the high prices charged... More

My wife and I took the lunch train for something to do after doing a lot of walking/shopping. It was a great scenic ride which was expected. What we didn't know is what to expect out of the lunch, the menu choices seemed lacking. We were pleasantly surprised, the food was great, service excellent and the dessert was to die... More
