The locomotive is also called the Excursion Train. The train ride is a short 4.5 miles from start to finish. The route goes through the Ozark Mountains. The train runs from April to the end of October. It is an educational excursion. The crew and conductor entertain questions and give instruction on how the train operates.

Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway

There’s a great article on USATODAY.com about one of our fun attractions here in Eureka Springs. It is the Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railroad Tour that I have been on many times. If you’ve never taken a ride it is enjoyable and the lunch & dinner trains have very good food. It is unique in that you can’t do it just anywhere and there is a lot of antique train memorabilia around the depot too. It runs through October, so if you’re planning on being here when it operates I would recommend it as a fun activity.
