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 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.

Wonderful dedicated people work & run this great railroad. We were in Springdale for the NRHS annual convention. The railroad put on a great performance. We were really impressed by "Brenda" who was the key linchpin pin of the whole operation. "Angela" was a super railroad cop. The passenger train is mostly run by volunteers & they were great including... More

We booked the excursion from Van Buren to Winslow! The conductor/guide tells you the history of the towns and includes trivia and fun facts. We were sitting in first class which included lunch and a picture! Definitely will do this again soon!

This was our first time to ride a train and it was great. The scenery would have been better if it was fall, but we really enjoyed it. I would not recommend it for small children, because the trip is a little long, and lot of children on the train were getting restless. We had living social vouchers so we... More
