The best thing about this train ride was the conductor. He was full of information about Eureka Springs and trains and railroad history. And he obviously thought it was important to give the most entertaining history lesson possible!

Of all the exciting things Eureka Springs has to offer the dinner on the train was the best. Fine Dining with a four course meal. The historic dining car is beautiful and the whole night was wonderful from the staff to the food. The prime rib was cooked to perfection and the dessert was as amazing to see as it... More

The railroad has a very short length of track (only about 2 miles) so riding out and back takes only about 90 minutes. This is offset by very interesting activity at each end of the track. At the station, they demonstrate reversing the locomotive by rotating it on a small turntable. At the end of the line, they demonstrate reversing... More

Waste of money and time the train was late and you take in more sights just driving yourself it was just a bunch of trees no real scenery. Terrible and if you are interested in getting a 15 dollar nap in then this is definitely for you. People working were great. Just not an experience I want to experience again.

We went on the dinner cruise and had a great time. The dining car was beautifully restored, it was like stepping back in time. The service and meal (we had the chicken) were wonderful and the baked Alaska dessert was a perfect finale. It was a very classy and romantic evening, I would definitely recommend it.

The conductor made the whole trip for us. He told stories as we made a 30-minute trip out, got out to place coins on the track and have them flattened (ah, to have fun like a kid again!), and then a 30-minute trip back to the station. You may get the same scenery driving along the route, but there's something... More

We really enjoyed the train ride and the food was good too. It was a little pricey, but honestly it was the most fun thing that we did on this trip.
