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.

From my undertanding, this was the first time they offered this trip and it was great! Left at 10pm, stopped at midnight to bring in the New Year and returned to Blue Ridge at 12:30. Loved it!

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

We did the 1 hour Santa trip with two year old twins. Our first time on the train here. One had a blast and the other fell asleep. Still got a great family shot w Santa. She just was sleeping in the photo. Enjoyed the Christmas carol singing. Will do this again.

This is touted by all as a must do in Blue Ridge. We stopped by the Depot gift shop and received the most cordial and loving service of any store in town. Super nice and attentive. Go smash a penny and get to know the staff. I will not forget this small shop full of Christmas joy.
