How anyone in their right mind thinks the Olive Store chain is a better Blue Ridge experience than this train is beyond me. My wife and I loved it and so did our children.

You will not be disappointed. I sugguest you buy your tickets ahead on line, so you just have to pick them up. The train is clean and the staff very helpful. A nice way to spend the day with family.

The train ride and staff were great. Although we came in December the view was still very nice. I was a little dissapointed with the layover in the little town. There was just nothing to do otther than crab a quick lunch.

Staff was very professional and informative. We enjoyed walking through the cars and looking at the beautiful scenery. There was just enough time during the stop to eat lunch and visit a few shops. Would like to go again in another season.

This is a fantastic trip and a great experience in the North GA mountains! A must-do for couples, families with children all the way up to Seniors. The motive power and cars are vintage and very clean and well maintained. Our Car Host was pleasant, informative and friendly. Although McCaysville/Copperhill could take some lessons from the BlueRidge Downtown Development Authority,... More
