Went to Eureka Springs, AR for a little vacation and took a ride on the Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway tourist train. http://www.esnarailway.com/about.htm
Had a good time up there. The ES&NA has 2.25 miles of track with a wye at the north end and a turntable at the south end. They run 3-5 trips a day, Tuesday through Saturday, April through October. The Conductor provided a lesson on railroad operations during the ride.
Their locomotive is an EMD SW1 600hp switcher that was built in 1942. They have a couple of coach cars and a couple of dinning cars. They run lunch and dinner trips if they have enough people.
Before October 2001, they also used an ALCO 2-6-0 Mogul steam locomotive. It is in need of an overhaul that ES&NA just cannot afford. I also understand from the Engineer that the ES&NA is for sale to someone that wants to keep it running as a tourist train. Any takers?
