Great train watching, very nice museum, friendly staff
Nov 2020 • Couples
We enjoyed our visit to the train depot. Outside there is a covered viewing platform just 50 feet from the multiple track lines. We ordered a picnic lunch from a local restaurant and saw 3 trains during the hour we watched. Each train had over 100 cars! The Bandy Heritage Center located inside the depot was a delightful surprise, showing how the chenille bedspread led to Dalton's carpet industry. There are nice restrooms inside the depot. We will visit again.

Helpful directions and visitor information. The changing exhibits in the depot offer insight into the Dalton area. And there are the many opportunities for train watching from the doorstep of the depot. Start your visit to Dalton here!

Working model train inside and as you eat- you may be lucky enough to see a real train o by! The location and history is what makes this restuarant most appealing then you get there and the food is great as well. Good country cooking fare at reasonable prices. Great place to visit for train enthusiasts or someone looking for a good meal!

I hope to see this local landmark for many years into the future.The trains still go by, only there is no passenger station. Trains are a big part of Dalton.

Nice place to relax and train watch

While visiting Dalton, I spent an early morning relaxing at the Dalton depot having coffee and watching trains. There is quite a lot of train traffic so waits are short.

The restored depot is a quick, very informative stop. You can gain information about Dalton and the surrounding area. The staff is helpful for your questions. There is an exhibt inside (air-conditioned and heated) that periodically changes and is always interesting.
Many folks like to just sit and rest while they wait for the next train, Dalton has many trains to see.

Nicely restored train depot

The tourist information center is located here along with a quasi-museum of the history of Dalton. The staff are friendly and helpful.

You can also relax outside on benches while watching the trains go by on the tracks.
