Parking lot accros the street, No sign

My friend and I took the northern route one day for a scenic excursion. (The train alternates between north and south routes, depending on direction permission given to it according to other necessary track activity. We enjoyed the leisure ride and scenic views, both going north and coming back to Branson. I are a lunch sandwich in the dining car.... More

This train departed a half hour late. It was not very scenic although it's called "The Scenic Railway". We were disappointed.

We took the train ride and they loved it. I have rode a train numerous times myself but it was a first for the girls and my husband.

Well it's a train ride. My 3 year old loves trains so I thought we'd feed his passion by rising the train. It's not bad but I can't say that it is an amazing adventure. The scenery isn't great but it did satisfy my boys fancy.

Don't waste money on this unless you like looking at trees and old run down trains. We were very disappointed with the not so scenic railway. I'm not sure how it stays in business as a matter of fact. Save your money and take a scenic drive.

We did the dinner excursion with other couples in our family. The service was good and the food acceptable (I would recommend the beef over the chicken, which was a bit dry.) While you do have to deal with a lot of shrubbery along the route, when spaces open up, the views are beautiful. Not a high-paced activity but a... More

This is just one of those things you have to do at least once while in Branson, this was in Oct. 2012. Some great views if you are watching because they are gone in a second! Just wasn't a long enough ride for me, especially for my very first train ride!

Nice slow, quite and peaceful trip. Kids may or may not get that excited about this slow moving train. Not a thrill ride!
