All Aboard at the Tennessee Valley
Railroad Museum!

Aboard the Tennessee Valley Railroad, you will ride a rolling time machine providing the sights and sounds of yesteryear.

Chickamauga Turn

The trip lasts approximately 6-1/4 hours and includes a 1-1/4 hour layover in Chickamauga, and a half-hour layover at Wilder Tower Monument in Chickamauga-Chattanooga National Military Park during the return trip to Chattanooga. (Grand Junction departure time is 10am; return is approximately 4:15pm.)

Layover time allows passengers to stroll through the quaint downtown area, visit the Chickamauga Depot which houses a regional history museum, or walk a block or two to view the Civil War-era Gordon-Lee Mansion and Crawfish Springs city park. Watch out for the Civil War cannons that stand guard over the main intersection in town!

A tour guide usually rides aboard the train to point out areas of interest and relay interesting historical information.

 

Food Options

New for 2016, ALL tickets for the Chickamauga Turn include food!  The basic offering is a box lunch which will be distributed to all passengers who have not opted for Dining Car service.  There are several options available which are selected during the checkout process.

 

In the dining car, lunch service begins at 11:00AM for those passengers who have selected that option. Lunch is similar to the following menu: Baked turkey and swiss cheese croissant with all the fixings, cole slaw, potato chips, and fruit cocktail. Beverages include iced tea or lemonade. The tasty dessert selection is usually chocolate fudge cake served with ice cream.


Cost for standard ticketing is $50 for adults and $35 for children age 2-12 (including a box lunch.) A ticket upgrade is available which includes luncheon served in the historic dining car: $60 for adults and $45 for children age 2-12.

 

New: Upgrade to Premium Observation-class seating in former Seaboard Air Line Railroad round-end tail car #6604. This car features booth seating in the front lounge and swivel chairs affording panoramic views in the rear lounge. The car will travel on the rear of the train in one direction of travel.  (Please note that this is not a "dome" car such as the one offered on Hiwassee River Rail Adventure trips.)  Riders in the Premium Observation Car will enjoy a dining car luncheon and unlimited snacks & soft drinks included in the price.
