I have taken all my nephews to ride the train. I have been going there for 20 years and have made friends with the engineer and 4 out of 6 have ridden with the engineer.

Dan & I did a special excursion. Little did we know that a box lunch was included! Had I known that, I wouldn't have made sandwiches for us. Great staff & scenery.

Lunch was average, but the riding through the woods was a treat during the Fall. It's fun for kids and train lovers and a unique experience.

Charming well kept and refurbished dining cars. Service is very good. The price is "A" typical of speciality dining. Must visit and let the kids see all those old trains.

I took my Momma up to eureka for a girl's weekend, and we decided to take the Lunch train as a lark. I am SO glad we did! The food was so, SO good, service was exemplary, and the scenery could not have been better! The conductor let us all lay coins on the track, then he backed over them... More

My husband is a train fanatic so he was fascinated by the entire experience. We wanted to go on the lunch train, but didn't get there in time. Hint: MAKE RESERVATIONS! We went on the regular ride and it was about like riding on a school bus. There was only one car and not really a lot of scenery, but... More

This is a must for all the train enthusiasts in the family. The main station ticket depot has numerous items of yesterday and the old engines like the ones that built the panama canal are there on display. The train ride is very authentic of yesterday and the windows do function as they did back when. Recommend~ YES

As a train buff, I eagerly awaited this trip and was not disappointed. From the historic station to the gift shop to the actual trip,it was all first class. Take this trip.

One of my favorites! The tour guide was great - he talked about the railroad and railcar history and added other facts about Arkansas. You ride to a turn around spot and they let you put coins on the rail to flatten them, so have some change handy.

You go through some real pretty areas but it is really only 15 minutes down the track. You do get a nice history lesson and get to have coins and nails smashed by the railway car.
