Ticket sales are now open for the 2014 NRHS Convention in Springdale, Arkansas. Highlighting this year's convention is three days of charter passenger trains on the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad, all powered by the A&M's remaining fleet of Alco locomotives, plus an Alco-powered photo freight through the Ozark Mountains. Other events include rides on the Fort Smith Trolley Museum and the coach and dinner trains of the Eureka Springs & North Arkansas Railroad. Special tours will be held at the Fort Smith Frisco Depot and the Arkansas & Missouri shops. Convention-goers can also enjoy the first ever behind-the-scenes tour of the steam railroad at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. Non-rail events include a day tour of the historic town of Eureka Springs and nearby War Eagle Mill, the internationally famous Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the Walmart Visitors Center located in the original Walton's 5 & 10, and the Botantical Garden of the Ozarks.
