Neat old train, smooth comfortable ride. We didn't see any scenery worth mentioning but had some great conversation with the couple we sat with. I should note there are 2 routes, we went south into Arkansas the other goes North, maybe it's scenic. Either way...More

Since it was a super hot day, we decided to relax in air conditioned comfort. The train ride was very relaxing, and the seats were quite comfy. It took about 2 hours, which was just right. The only complaint I have, which is minor, is...More

We enjoyed our railroad trip. Sat in the dome car, hoping to see "the Ozarks." The foliage along the tracks was fairly close-by and solid green, so other than a few overlooks, there was no "scenic" in Branson Scenic Railway. The staff was polite ad...More

Enjoyed a nice relaxing lunch ride. We sat incar just before the concession car. Ate lunch while riding, on $6-7 including drink. Beautiful countryside with leaves turning colors.

They say to arrive 45minutes early as it is first come first served for seating. The platform was filled with people by 11:15 when we were supposed to start boarding. We did not start boarding until 1135. The vegetation was quite dense so the view...More

while I've not been on the dinner train, the booths are in an upper level observation car while the tables are in the lower level, regular cars.

Yes there are ramps and you can just roll right on. There are stairs going up to the dome, though since it is a bit tight, but I think that is the only "stairs only" place.
