May through October, the dining car is open for lunch and dinner on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. Lunch trips last approximately one and a half hours and dinner trips last approximately two hours.


As you enjoy a luxurious train ride through the magnificent scenery of Eureka Springs, savor a delicious, local menu of seasonally-inspired dishes. Choose from a selection of beef, chicken, and seafood entreés served in an elegant space with white table linens that reflect tradition rail style.
