Dinner on the Diner

 

Join the Tennessee Valley Railroad for special Dinner Trains on select Saturdays of most months (April through November.) The trips include a three-course dining experience usually on board a restored 1924 dining car. Excursion trains will depart from Chattanooga's Grand Junction Station in the evening, traveling at a leisurely pace through portions of urban East Chattanooga before reversing direction and returning to Grand Junction. (Departure times vary from 5:30 to 8:00 depending on trip selected.) The travel time is just right for the complete meal in a vintage dining car.

This unique opportunity allows patrons to enjoy not only a railroad excursion trip but also fine dining en route while the train travels along the rails. Passengers are encouraged to choose their entrée as tickets are ordered.

Patrons may select their entrée of (sample): 

  • Carved English Roast of Beef topped with a Madeira Sauce
  • Herb Roasted Stuffed Breast of Chicken with a Cumberland Sauce
  • Crusted Filet of Salmon with a Lemon Caper Butter Sauce.

Other savory items include tomato bisque with creme fraiche and chives, homemade mashed potatoes, seasoned green beans, and assorted bread and butter.

Beverages:

  • Water
  • Coffee
  • Lemonade
  • Iced Tea (Sweet or Unsweet)

Choice of dessert includes:

  • A Triple Chocolate Cake with Ice Cream and Fudge Sauce
  • Apple Pie with Ice Cream and Caramel Sauce
  • Cheesecake with Strawberries

Passengers may choose from true vintage dining in the Dining Car (four to a table*) or the smaller tables for two in Pullman Car Clover Colony. Presidential Office Car Eden Isle is offered for private charter representing the ultimate in railway travel and can be reserved for private parties up to eight persons. The Office Car boasts a dining room, lounge area, and rear observation platform. These fortunate passengers will dine at their own private table aboard the special car. This option can be reserved for only one group per evening.

*Parties of less than four in the dining car are subject to assignment with other passengers.

Tickets for the excursion and dinner start at $59 per person. If you're interested in a hotel package that includes dinner train tickets as well as overnight accommodations, please visit the link below:
