Nice Relaxing Ride

Really enjoyed this train ride. The confirm is made up of many people vintage rail cars that have been restored. Quite interesting learning of their past lives. Scenery is pretty... read more

This was excellent. Booked the premier coach for cool comfort. The scenery was beautiful, and there are not enough words to describe the professionalism of the hostesses. Superb adventure!

We love the historic train rides and this one was tops. Due to summer heat and desire for comfort and quietness, we booked premier class. Car 105 was excellent and the ladies serving us were outstanding. Our servers were Michelle, Sharon, and Linda....treated us like royalty! Complimentary snacks, beverages, photo, souvenir, and tote....we were very pleased. The stop over in... More

We were very pleased with the train trip. I couldn't find much anywhere on the type of cars before we booked. The open air cars looked interesting but waiting for the train to leave in the heat did not seem appealing. We had booked a closed car and we're glad we did on this hot, July day. Our car was...

Great experience! Haven't been on an open air train in a long time and it was fun. The scenery was great, saw people fly fishing and tubing on the Toccoa.

This was a great ride and a whole lot of fun! The conductors and operators were great! They accommodated us wonderfully with our 1 year old. They took the time to play and interact with her while on the ride to the twin cities. Great job guys!

Really enjoyed this train ride. The confirm is made up of many people vintage rail cars that have been restored. Quite interesting learning of their past lives. Scenery is pretty with lots of river scenes, rafters and fly fisherman. Two hours at our stop was perfect. Just enough time for bathroom breaks, leisurely strolls, shopping and u rushed lunching

We booked two premier seats and have to say it was worth every penny. The cabin was about half full so sat opposite my wife giving us great views. The two twin sister hostesses were great and kept us well informed as well as plenty of soft drinks, a nice cheese and biscuit platter with the same but donuts on... More

This route is not as scenic as other railroads I've ridden in the Blue Ridge Mountains. That being said we had a good time! The town that was the half way point on the ride was just a small town. It wasn't really scenic or "cute". There is one restaurant on the river and the line was too long for... More

My wife and myself rode the Blue Ridge Scenic Train. Not a bad ride, but nothing really outstanding. To term it "scenic" i think is a little misleading. For the most part the tracks are surrounded by trees. Occasionally you are able to see the Toccoa River and a few nice houses that are on the hills by the tracks... More
