Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway

Established in 1981, this private non-profit company offers tourists a chance to ride one of the classic locomotives throughout Eureka Springs in a 2.5-mile round trip (which takes about an hour). There are five locomotives offering tours, including a 1906 wood-burner and a 1942 first-generation diesel switcher. Visitors can choose between a lunch or dinner trip, or take just the tour, which is offered throughout the day. While waiting for a ride (or upon return), tourists can enjoy the rolling stock, which includes static displays (wood cabooses, passenger coaches and speeder maintenance cars), outbuildings and railroad paraphernalia such as bells and carts.
