We traveled from Springdale AR to Van Buren. The ride was enjoyable. There was still too much foliage to see many views. Van Buren was interesting. We had a fun time.

Thoroughly enjoyed our excursion and onboard dining. Very nice scenic railway. Our conductor/tour guide was highly knowledgeable about the area and took time to point out many points of interest. Look forward to taking a scenic ride in the fall. A must for families

It was so warm that we bought cold drinks and snacks on the train. Very reasonable. I would skip the lunch box though.
