Most take this train in the fall to see the colors. We went in the Spring and loved every minute. Very comfortable cars; extremely friendly and knowledgeable car hosts. Eating lunch in Tennessee is a plus!

We went on the Easter train and it was eggcelent. The train rode out to a field where you were helped off to hunt eggs. This was great they had the field divided into age appropriate areas so no big kids were knocking down the babies. This is a definite must. We plan to go back for the pumpkin or... More

We went on the Easter Egg hunt one hour ride - cost our family $200. Went on an 20 minute ride out to the egg hunt, was not scenic. Hunted for eggs only to find they were all empty. Waited in a long line with disappointed kids holding empty eggs to turn in the empty eggs and be given a... More

First, the town is tasteful with great authentic dining not frozen fast food, the downtown has unique gift shops that offers something for everyone from dad to dog, the prices are reasonable and you will want to go back because once is not enough. We drove from Murphy, NC to Blue Ridge, GA in less than thirty minutes. Go, eat,... More

This train ride is so relaxing and great for all ages. I enjoyed the scenic views of the river and beautiful homes. The trip is a 1 hour ride each way and two hours to shop & dine.

This is such a great thing to do as a family and especially fun for kids. The trip takes about 1 1/2 hrs each way and follows along the beautiful Toccoa River. You will arrive in Copperhill Tenn. & McCaysville Ga. You will have just over an hour to explore the town and take a photo on the Ga. Tenn.... More

My husband and i went on the 2nd running of the prmeire car. It was very nice. Free rose ..train pin..train book...tote bag...free snacks and beverages..the staff was wonderful. We chatted with the conductor. They took us out on the platform to take pictures while train was moving. My only suggestion would be cup holderrs of some sort.

Vacationing from Florida, we were lucky enough to ride the 2015 season inaugural trip on our last day in Blue Ridge. Icing on the cake, this was also the first ever premier class car. It was a rainy day but the service was excellent, the ride scenic, and the layover in McCaysville / Copperhill very enjoyable. We chose to spend... More
