Depending on what excursion you book, the train rides could be anywhere from a 70-mile round-trip to a 134-mile round-trip.
The Springdale to Van Buren trip is pretty much an all-day trip with a 3-hour stop in Van Buuren for shopping and lunch in the city with small-town charm.
If you take the train rides from Van Buren they offer tourists the most scenic ride 3-hour ride through the picturesque Boston Mountains of the Ozark region of the state. Be prepared to see stunning views along the way as you ride over trestles and through a 1700-foot-long tunnel that will blow your mind. There's just something special about taking a train ride and seeing the countryside from a different perspective. It might even bring back some good old memories of playing with your old toy train set when you were a kid. Riding a train is certainly a piece of Americana's past and present history that as Americans we should really preserve.
