Summerville Steam Special

 

These vintage trains follow a historic route from Grand Junction Station in Chattanooga to Summerville, Georgia; crossing the state line in Rossville, traveling past Chickamauga-Chattanooga National Military Park and through Chickamauga, Rock Spring, LaFayette, Trion, and into Summerville. Departure for the all day trip is 9:00 am with return approximately 6:00 pm.

Added for 2017: Spring and Summer dates!  See calendar for specific dates. To learn more about upcoming events planned during your layover in Summerville, please click HERE.

For Autumn trips, fall colors are usually a highlight outside the train, while a dining car luncheon, complete with chinaware, is served inside dining car Travelers Fare. During the approximately 1-1/2 hour layover in Summerville, passengers will be able to explore the town and adjacent Dowdy Park with its historic turntable. The locomotive will be rotated on the turntable, serviced and watered for its return trip to Chattanooga.  Motive power is expected to be recently-restored ex-Southern #4501.


Double-headed Steam Trips : 

For three trips in 2017, double-headed steam will be featured with both #4501 and #630 on June 3 and October 28 & 29.
