The four hour trip is great. Views spectacular and information provided by the volunteer staff was excellent. Arrival at McCaysville allowed us lunch at a choice of many restaurants plus shopping, then back to the train for the return trip. This group does a great job and provides a nice train experience for first time riders to those that have... More

Certainly worth a the ride over the border into TN. The scenery is outstanding. The journey in an open railway carriage on a beautiful sunny day amongst the trees and mountains is a day out not to be forgotten in a hurry. Once in TN you are given about an hour or so to check out the town and have... More

We really enjoyed the train experience. We really enjoyed the pizza shop across from the train station where the train stopped.

The staff are very friendly and suggest walking the length of the train while it is moving. Not much to see out the window, but the staff and the train itself were worth the trip, friendly customer service seems to be rare in north Georgia, so went back again the next week.

We rode in the open air car which was a little windy and chilly but it was worth it. The view is great! If the kids had been with us I would have chosen the regular train car just because it was cold. Just a warning ladies - you're hair will get messed up in the open air car! Lol!... More

Visiting our daughter in the Atlanta area the last few days and they suggested taking the Scenic Railway as a way to spend an afternoon. Four adults and our 9 year old grand daughter made the trip. I bought tickets online and took advantage of the military discount offered. The slightly less than one hour train ride took us through... More
