Departs at 8 am from the Springdale Depot, 306 E Emma Ave, Springdale, AR

Enjoy a day long, 134 mile scenic round trip to historic Van Buren aboard one of our vintage passenger cars.  With passenger cars dating from the early 1900s, the Excursion Train is comprised of enclosed coaches offering coach, club and First Class seating. The A & M also features the opportunity to ride in our classic caboose.  Sit back, enjoy the great views and visit with friends and family as you travel through the foothills of the Boston Mountains, across our three high trestles (approx. 120 ft high) and through the 1700 ft tunnel at Winslow. A live narration along the way covers local history and key points of interest.  During your 2-3 hour layover in historic downtown Van Buren enjoy lunch in one of several local cafes, shop along Main St and enjoy the rich architecture of the historic downtown buildings.
