What to Photograph:
The collection of vintage rolling stock at ES&NA is one of the Ozarks’ largest, and all the authentic railroad memorabilia is here to re-create the turn-of-the-century era and give modern visitors a taste of how it was when rail service brought the first visitors to Eureka Springs in 1883. Between trains is a good time to see all the other exhibits, including a restored turntable, a handcar, vintage locomotives and rolling stock galore, and even an automobile outfitted to run on the rails.
Best Time for Photographers:
The ES&NA is open April through October, Tuesday through Saturday.
