"Pleasant ride"

We rode the train from Van Buren to Winslow and back. The weather was perfect and the dome car was worth the extra cost. Be sure to mention the senior discount. There is no... read more

We came to Springdale from Tulsa specifically for the Christmas Train. We enjoyed it although I wish it had been a little longer train ride. Also, there were music books and some of the other cars sang carols during the ride but our guide didn't really know what to do. I think it was his first time. But, Santa was... More

Been on train twice, but museum is good. Has been customer friendly over the years, but Christmas train needs to be more mindful of families of more than four and try to not split. Additionally church groups should not allowed to be singing if they don't know words. It is not fun. Otherwise, good attraction.

I would go again. I want to ride in the caboose. Or on a special Christmas train. Staff is very friendly and willing to help.

If you want to see the scenery just drive it, the views are just as good and you are not stuck in Van Buren doing nothing. It was a ghost down...only a couple stores open for you to shop 3 hours! The staff on the train were not helpful and the waiter (I guess that is what you would call... More

There was a group of 33 of us. Brenda and Dianne were so very nice to work with. Everything went well from tickets to accommodations. The conductors were fun and we enjoyed their silly stories. Everyone bent over backwards to make our trip fun. This was a highlight of our trip.

Where do I begin? I'll start by saying we paid $110 to sit in the dome. However, once your up there, they forget about you. We left 15 minutes late. Talking to guests who had taken this tour in the past, they said they has a guide, that told them about the trip, it's history, etc. all the way to... More

We booked the first class fall foliage trip from Springdale to Van Buren. The trip was ok, though I never could figure out what made the accommodations first class. The train itself is pretty cool, but could be so much classier... Van Buren left much to be desired...small with only two restaurants, neither of which accommodate diet restrictions. Not much...

We had originally planned this trip for late August but luckily, the A&M railroad cancelled for lack of ridership on that date. Luckily because instead of a hot August date, we enjoyed a very cool September trip. We upgraded to the dome car and the panorama views between Springdale and Van Buren were spectacular. I think that the A&M staff... More
