“Great place to visit with school age children”

Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 December 2011

We were studying the train era, when I took my 12 year old daughter here. She was fascinated by the trains and the memorabilia. We took the train ride and got to smash a penny on the tracks. If you go, listen to the tour guide. Not only was ours very entertaining but extremely knowledgeable!

If you want a long ride on an old railroad, skip it. This is a pleasant SHORT ride but not the most scenic. Up and back. 3 hrs. If they have the steam engine, maybe worth it. If not foregettitabout it! They have a seasonal dinner trip that might be worth looking into.

One out of Bransons is much prettier ride and this sin;t close to the Durango Silverton ride. Similar to Fremont train in Nebraska or the one that runs into the plains out of Winnepeg. Conductor is a great story teller and it is kind of fun. They let you smash coins on the trak so that made it OK for me.

Visited the ES&NA Railway this past weekend. Beautiful old depot, lots of great pictures, interesting collection of rolling stock. The best part about the place was how hands on it was and how friendly the staff was. They let my five year old help start the diesel locomotive for our excursion and they let our yellow lab ride the train with us. There was a nice little gift shop, a little overpriced for t-shirts, but nonetheless a nice selection of train themed stuff. There is a little snack shop and you can bring it on the train for the ride. The conductor was enthusiast and friendly and full of interesting facts. We also got to put pennies on the track and watch the diesel flatten them. It's a simple place, the ride is short and not incredibly scenic, but the people and hands on experiences made it worth the visit, especially if you like railroad history.

We wanted to do this the last time we were in Eureka Springs but didn't. The train ride is a little cheesey but fun. The food was wonderful, champagne was very good too. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. They joked with us and saw to our every need.
