The Prime Rib was delicious, along with the rest of the meal including the fabulous "Flaming Baked Alaska". It was a very romantic setting to celebrate our anniversary. The staff was nice and I didn't think the price was bad compared to other dinner trains I've investigated. The train ride however was extremely short and nothing very interesting to view.... More

The train yard is filled with the huge mechanical mementos of decades passed, with lush Ozark hills and stream in the background. A resident kitty resides in the gift shop, collecting her salary from visiting animal lovers. Once on the train, our hostess/waitress Kathy was lovely and attentive. We chose chicken salad for lunch, and it was fantastic! The dining... More

Very nice, great conductor running the tour. Got to smash pennies on the track! Just took sight seeing tour, but I would love to do the dinner or lunch tour.

We loved the ride and our conductor was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained. Enjoyed hearing his stories and learning at the same time. We did not take the dinner trip, but had a wonderful time and will definitely go back. Well worth the money.

If you like trains then this is a great couple of hours getting to ride one. Family friendly too. Our kiddo was a little over 2 at the time and she really enjoyed her self. I loved hearing all the history of that particular railway line.

If you remember the way that railroads treated their passengers, this dinner trip is a must for you. Not a long ride, but carries you back decades into memory. Thanks, Kathy, for such hospitality! This railroad needs to be saved!

The 1 1/2 train ride was fun. We went on the lunch train ride and really enjoyed it. The train travels at a very slow speed and gives you an opportunity to see the countryside. The meal offered was surprising good. The dessert was very tasty as well. The overall experience rates as a must see during your visit.

Enjoyed viewing the artifacts from an earlier way of life, some of which are open access. Travis, our conductor, is really an asset to the railway! His passion for railroading really comes thru w/ his stories...

My son loved this train ride! It is kid friendly and the conductor paid extra special attention to him! The conductor knew alot about the town and the history of the train. He told a few stories and jokes that kept us entertained! It was awesome! Would definitely recommend this to anyone of any age!
