This blog post continues Day 7 of our 13-day vacation. We are in Eureka Springs, AR attending the annual Vulcan Riders and Owners Club (VROC) Reunion motorcycle rally.
This afternoon Bob and I went sightseeing. Our first stop was at Thorncrown Chapel. Our second stop was at the Crescent Hotel. Our third stop was at the historic Eureka Springs and North Arkansas Railway Train Depot.
the Eureka Springs and North Arkansas Railway Train Depot
Note the 0-4-0 narrow-guard (24-inch) steam locomotive, used to advertise the railway.
The locomotive was built in Berlin, Germany in 1934.
The Eureka Springs and North Arkansas Railway is a for-profit passenger tourist railway. The railway offers excursion tours, a catered luncheon train and a catered dinner train. The train depot was closed, when we arrived. Checking the train schedule, we determined that the last train departed at 12:30 pm. We spent a few minutes checking out the train yard.
We departed the train depot en route to our last sightseeing stop of the day — the Christ of the Ozarks (my blog post).
