The scenery was amazing. The stories the guide told were interesting. We even had a staged robbery which was fun. I was with a large tour group so we had a box lunch which was really yummy. My only complaint is that it was just a little too long. I think the one we did was 3 hours. I would... More

A great way to spend a day riding the rails. We upgraded to the dome car and it was worth the upgrade. This is our third or fourth trip on the train. In the dome you can see over the tree tops and see the beautiful landscape. The leaves had just a hint of color. In a couple of weeks... More

My youngest son and I have done this for the last two years: first in Coach and then in the Dome car. Both times were a lot of fun but he prefers the Dome car. I liked Coach a bit more because the Dome is a bit crowded. We will be going back to try out First Class. Great for... More

This was a very interesting way to spend a day, very enjoyable. The old railroad cars were very interesting and a bit of history. They're not as comfortable as modern day Amtrak cars, but for the short trip, it was pretty nice. The two hosts on the trip kept us entertained and were very knowledgeable around the area and it's...

My husband and I decided to take my 7 year old granddaughter. However, I believe my husband and I enjoyed it more. It's a trip back in time, we enjoyed the stories told by the announcer and learning about the past. The staff was extremely nice and the scenery was beautiful. I think it's a great peaceful trip for us... More

We visited this railroad and museum during the National Railway Historical Society National convention. Great museum and will be getting larger very soon. The railroad understands about customer service. They live excellent every day and it show in both the commercial customers and the visitors on it's excursion trains. Well don AMR

We took the train from Springdale to Van Buren with a 2 1/2 hr layover. We rode 1st class in the dome car 108. It rained on us all day, so all my pictures taken out the windows are blurry. The staff was very friendly and the snacks were good! We enjoyed our ride, it was just a bit too... More

We took the excursion train on the Arkansas Missouri railroad from Van Buren to Winslow and back. It was fun traveling in a train car that was built in the early 1900's. The scenery was great and the staff on the train were helpful and entertaining. We traveled on a hot day in July and were comfortable, the air conditioning... More

We had a great conductor by the name of Larry, and he really made it fun. The train was late getting in but that is to be expected. Van Buren was a small town which was slowly drying up because of the economics. I did enjoy Marcia Cooksey unique shop while there.
