Branson Scenic Railway

This Branson Scenic Railway tour travels its way through the majestic and breathtaking views of Ozarks Mountain that will let you enjoy a relaxing and refreshing atmosphere that you can’t experience in the city. Branson Scenic Railway started its operation right after the completion of the White River Railway in 1905. The construction of the railroad cost $12 million to lay 239 miles of track through the rugged terrain of the Ozark mountains.

Branson came into existence when Reuben S. Branson moved to the present Lake Taneycomo (formerly called White River) and Roark Creek as early as 1882. When the railroad was constructed around the Ozark mountains, tunnels were blasted and many trestles were built to support the gorges through the mountains. With the completion of the railroad in 1905, Branson started to flourish and the people had the first opportunity to travel by train. In those days, Branson Scenic Railway became a popular tourist attraction where many people wanted to experience the most exciting train travel adventure.

The train excursion tour of the Branson Scenic Railway that started in 1933 became a daily tour where it utilized a commercial railroad line for its traveling patrons. The train route is first announced to traveling tourists before every departure that goes either north or south. The northern route of the train will go as far as Galena, Missouri while the southern route will go as far as Arkansas. While the train travels, the narrator tells the story of the area where the train passes. The narrator points out the communities and describes the construction history of the railroad. As the train continues its journey through southwest Missouri, original tunnels and treaties can still be sighted.
