We drove down from Northern Illinois with 2 grandsons in order to take the kids pajama Christmas train. Their website is lacking on information but I purchased club car tickets & hoped for the best. We stopped by in the afternoon to pick our tickets up & discovered a parking lot with kids activities so we stayed to have some... More

This is a fantastic train trip over the scenic Ozark Mountains, complete with a tunnel and tall trestles. The staff was so friendly and accommodating, and we had a great time. Thanks A&M for a great trip!

My daughter won tickets for this train ride and we went the day after Thanksgiving. There weren't many of us on the train so we all rode in the "first-class car." The train car itself was lovely, decorated for Christmas. It was clean and very comfortable, outfitted with both tables and comfy chairs. The crew working that day was delightful;... More

We took the train from Springdale, Arkansas to Van Buren, Arkansas. The trip there took exactly 3 hours. The heat/cooling system on the train itself was inconsistant. The helpers on board were friendly and "aimed to please." It was a long three hours. Once in Van Buren, we were told we would be there for 3-1/4 hours. UGGGG! The stores... More

The Arkansas & Missouri tourist train began in 1991 when a passenger car was added on Fort Smith bound freight trains. It was dropped off at Van Buren and then picked up when the freight passed through Van Buren. In 1998 it was formally announced that the tourist train would shut down in November. Governor Huckabee used the train for... More

I'll try and write an honest review without coming off too harshly. We booked this adventure over a month in advance over the phone and got an email confirmation that we will have table #5 on the Silver Feather car 108. We arrived at the station about 30 minutes ahead of the departure time. Went into the door that said... More

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...
