The largest privately-owned O-guage Train display: 14 trains travel over a mile of track in a 4,000 sq ft layout that is a fantasy journey in Southern Apalachia mountains. Absolutely unbelievable!

We have been there several times and every time back we see something we missed on another visit. This is a great place for YOUNG and OLD. This gentleman loved trains and you can see it in this display. I think they can run 8 trains at a time. Some much detail went into making this model railroad. There is... More

It is very well organized with a short lecture of what you will see. Time is spent looking at a room filled with a collection of different trains from all over the country.You are then ushered out of the building into a home housing the diorama of the Northern Georgia Region as well as the State Capital Building in Atlanta...

The model train room is amazing but the room where you watch the video is overwhelmingly musty/moldy. The room with the model trains smells like smokers work or live there. I would recommend an air purifier for both.

My husband and I made an overnight stop on a Sunday in Blairsville on our way from Blue Ridge to Atlanta specifically to see the Misty Mountain Model Railroad and Brasstown Bald Mountain. I will say that we had a very difficult time determining the hours and days the railroad was open because various sources had conflicting information and we... More

My son loves trains so we found this place and thought we'd take him to see it (8 years old). We had a great time and the place is truly amazing. Highly recommended for all ages.

the amount of detail that went into these trains is amazing, its definitely worth a visit if you're in the area. Make sure you check the hours before you go, they are not open all of the time. If you have kids under 5, they will enjoy seeing the trains but they are not allowed to touch them and that... More

What you will see is a work of love by many people who contributed their skills over many years to build this magnificent model railroad. Several trains run through tracks that depict many of Georgia´s landmarks, each build with amazing detail. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the visit. Check webpage for dates and times as it does not open... More

We enjoyed the actual train models. We did not enjoy the boring DVD we had to watch in the mildew smelling basement before we were allowed to go in.

As others have stated, this is the most amazing train layout I have ever seen. It is not only huge, but it is beautifully detailed, in a rather whimsical way. There is a sailing ship (like a Spanish galleon) in the "river" near Tallulah Gorge, which just makes me laugh, but I can see others scratching their heads and saying... More

What a great model railroad display here. Lots of work went into this hometown attraction tucked away just south of town. Take the grand kids and enjoy.
