All aboard!  The Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway Company’s excursion train is ready to have you step back in time and travel as they did in 1883.  Join them for their 4 ½ mile ride through the hills of the Ozarks and they will explain train operations along the way.  This is about a 45 minute ride and is a terrific way to see the mountain side, so just sit back and “enjoy the ride”. 

 

If you prefer, they also offer a lunch or dinner excursion which lasts 1½ hours.  The train leaves at 12:00 P.M. for lunch and 5:00 P.M. for dinner.  The cost is $36.50 per person and guests have a choice of prime rib, trout, or a boneless baked chicken breast.  Also included are soup or salad, Baked Alaska, and soft drinks!  Sign me up!!   

 

When the train has reached its destination, you will have the opportunity to see other exhibits, including a restored turntable, a handcar, vintage locomotives, rolling stock, and even an automobile outfitted to run on the rails.  Lastly, don’t miss the Baggage Room Gift Shop for some souvenirs!
