My husband and I picked one of the hottest days of the year to take our excursion on the Arkansas-Missouri Railroad. However, Conductor MIke did a great job of keep our first class** car cool and offering cold refreshments. The trip from Springdale to Van Buren took about 2.5 hours. However due to the heat, we had to go slower... More

This scenic railroad ride was really fun and relaxing. It takes about 2 1/2 hours to go from Springdale to Van Buren. We upgraded to the 1st class car for $10 per person; lots of room plus snacks and beverages. Not a lot to do in Van Buren. At least 1/2 of the stores were either out of business or... More

This was a very good train ride! We have rode passenger trains for the past 10 years in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Arizona and now Arkansas. This one is one of the best other than the Verde Canyon in Arizona. Coach tickets are just fine...was in Car 105 that has been beautifully restored. Rode from Van Buren to Arkansas...volunteers...

We rode the train from Springdale to Van Buren on the Silver Feather car. We had a great time. Larry the conductor decided to give us a hard time since we're from Texas. Met a nice couple who sat across from us on the train. We went to the Drennan-Scott house once we got to Van Buren. Worth the time... More

We rode the excursion train out of Van Buren to Winslow and back. It was so much fun! Just gorgeous. Going over the trestles and through the tunnel was thrilling! (Kiss your sweetie in the tunnel.) Spring for the first class ticket. You will be glad to have the extra room and a table. Just know that the box lunch... More

After seeing a deal for this on Groupon my fiance and I jumped at the opportunity to ride the rails. Took the shorter 3 hour tour from Van Buren to Winslow. Ride was bumpy and trying to go to the bathroom during what feels like an earthquake was an adventure but other than that had a good time. There wasn't... More

Wonderful views from the Vista Dome car. Entertaining and extremely friendly crew. Good family trip for the day. Visit the Opera House in Van Buren and be sure to ask the hostess for the behind the scenes story.

We decided to take the train from Springdale to Van Buren. The train leaves at 8 am with a 2 hour stop over in Van Buren and arrives back at 5:30pm approximately. The train itself is amazing it is old and has character - the people who work on it are amazing and entertaining and it is very interesting to... More

Our journey started at 8 am and arriving back at 5:30 pm. A day filled with charming and engaging personnel from the train. A definite must do if you get the chance.
