The Branson Scenic Railway provides fabulous views of the Ozark foothills in a 40-mile, round-trip ride that takes guests across bridges and trestles and through mountain tunnels. The tours are just under 2 hours in length and depart from the historic Branson depot, built in 1905. Riders can choose from coach seating to dome cars on vintage trains from the 40s and 50s. During the holidays, the Railway operates an official Polar Express excursion. Evening Dinner Train rides are also available April through November, featuring a four-course, candlelight dinner.
