There was a new rundown of the 4 most "charming Fall train rides" you can take by Only In Your State and this Missouri train was placed at the top of the list. It's the Branson Scenic Railway and boy is it a looker.

The views in the southern part of Missouri are unmatched and this train also includes compartments that have glass roofs for an even better view of the Branson scenery.
