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.

The service was excellent. Servers were friendly and accessible. Food was sub par for the price. Skip the meal and enjoy the Baked Alaska. The ride was a view of the water treatment plant, a stream, the highway and a train track. No view. Ride was a short distance and we spent 40 minutes over the stream while the meal... More

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.
