By all means go if you can. Van Buren has some interesting vignettes and they still run an excursion train out of there I believe. It's a fairly easy line to follow most of the way. I suspect the SD70ACes are just the beginning of a big change so there is no time like the present. I made the pilgrimage two years ago and wish I had spent longer in the Springdale area. One of a handful of places to still see Alcos just doing their everyday thing. We are headed to Colorado in September and may make a southern return thru there if weather on the BNSF coal artery is poor.
