Eureka Springs and North Arkansas Railway

Decided to try something different. Visited Eureka Springs and North Arkansas Railway and booked a trip on the dinner train.
Dressed up and with dreams of experiencing the romance of train travel in the past, an antique looking 1920 train pulled up at the station and we were escorted to the elegant dining salon.
It was a very enjoyable experience with great food and lovely views from the windows whilst the train slowly rolled down the tracks.
Here's a sample of the dinner menu :
"Chicken Eurekan"
Baked Chicken Breast
~ $36.50 ~
"The Conductor"
Chef's Prime Rib
~ $36.50 ~
The City of New Orleans"
Rainbow Trout Almondine
~ $36.50 ~
All entre├ęs are accompanied by our Chef's Special soup & salad, rice pilaf, vegetables and Flaming Baked Alaska.
Wine & Champagne available.
Casual to semi-formal attire suggested.
Prices include train fare and meal. - Gratuities not included. Reservations Suggested.
Sorry - minimum of 5 years of age on dinner trains only.
I had the rainbow trout almondine which was very fresh and tasty. The dessert - flaming baked alaska was presented with flair and I wished they had given us more.

- 4 1/2 mile round trip - approx. 1 1/2 hrs.
