Great way to spend a day in Blue Ridge and McCaysville. Gorgeous scenery and relaxing trip. Well worth the cost.

This railway trip boasts scenic views and that's something we got traveling in September - through the trees and alongside a river. It is an hour long trip each way with a two hour stop over in McCaysville, GA/Copperhill, TN. That's plenty of time to check out the shops and grab a bite to eat. You can move between cars,... More

We took this "scenic" train ride up the Blue Ridge to the town of Mc Caysville in September. The ride itself was nothing special, seat not very comfortable. Not really scenery, just trees and a river. The river was nice but again, nothing special. When we got to the town we were SO disappointed. Half the shops were closed and... More

I love trains generally and heritage railways in particular. There is something about being able to relax, forget about driving, watch the scenery go by and feel part of an cultural tradition that always cheers me up. It's a bonus if the route is special, with bridges, tunnels and waterfalls, or the train itself is special, perhaps steam-hailed, or the... More

I love the outdoors and my husband loves trains so I pick our travels according to what towns have scenic train rides. In this years search I found the Blue Ridge Scenic Train ride and decided this is where we'll be heading this trip and we were not disappointed. A lovely 45 minute trip through the mountains in an open... More

The Blue Ridge Train is a great time for the family to enjoy. The train ride takes you to McCaysville on the state line between Tennessee and Georgia and brings you back after lunch to Blue Ridge. It is a very scenic ride along the river. The kids really enjoyed the experience.

This is a very sleepy ride through beautiful forests and alongside rivers, but not really spectacular scenery. It's really nice for about 30 minutes, then gets pretty boring, especially for kids. If the destination were wonderful it might be worth it, but McCaysville doesn't have much to offer. For those not up to physical activity, this is nice. But-if you... More

We visited here for the day right after Christmas and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Took the train ride in the reserved box car area. It was too cold to ride in the open air. The scenery was spectacular and this was a great adventure for a reasonable price. It was cold and dreary but we still enjoyed our stay
