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

The seats were fairly comfortable however if you do bring a cushion with you we were able to leave jackets and other personal possession on the train while we were in Van Buren.

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