Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway: Lunch Excursion
Step back in time to an earlier age of locomotive transportation! View the steam locomotive exhibits, see the 1940-era diesel locomotive in operation, and watch the authentic turntable operate as it turns the engine around- all while dining in luxury as you ride the rails aboard an air conditioned 1920's Dining Car. At the end of your voyage, shop in the Baggage Room Gift Shop for railroad-related souvenirs and gifts. This 1.5 hour trip along the restored Missouri and North Arkansas Railroad travels to Junction, AR and back. Our group will be seated in the Adult Dining Car, and a lunch of your choice (with hot, fresh baked rolls, beverage and special dessert) is included. Cost: $26 per person includes train fare and meal. Gratuities not included. Tickets: **RSVP'ing on Meetup does not secure your ticket!** You must purchase your ticket and select your lunch on the Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railway website at Be sure to select the correct date- Saturday, September 22 at noon!

What we're about

Welcome! Founded in March 2016, this group is for adults that want to enjoy various low to moderate level outdoor activities in NWA. Activity examples include nature walks, beginner-moderate hikes, float trips, swimming, festivals, craft fairs, picnics, zoos and wildlife rescues, outdoor concerts, exploring quaint downtown areas, mini golf, biking for leisure, etc. Most events will also offer an additional opportunity for a meal. We typically meet once per month. All are welcome so long as they act like ladies and gentlemen. Participants do so at their own risk.

New Members automatically receive a 60 Day Free Trial so you can RSVP for an event and check us out in person! However, there is a cost to maintain our group website and occasionally we must put down a deposit before an event so NWA Fresh Air and Sunshine charges annual membership dues of $10/year to help cover these and other costs. Once your 60 Day Free Trial has expired, you must pay your annual dues or your membership will be automatically discontinued.

Your event suggestions are always welcome! Please post in our Discussion Board or send me a private message.

We look forward to seeing you at our next event!
