Honor Veterans at TVRM This Weekend

This weekend, the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum is proud to pay tribute to the valiant service men and women who have served our country. In a heartfelt salute to our veterans, we’re not just reminiscing about the past; we’re actively continuing a longstanding tradition where railroads play a crucial role in military logistics.

We invite all veterans to join us for a complimentary journey back in time aboard the Missionary Ridge Local. This offer is valid throughout the Veterans Day weekend, from November 10th through 12th, as a gesture of our deep appreciation for their sacrifices and service.

To add to the weekend’s commemorations, we’re also hosting a special display of Korean War Marine Corps equipment on Veterans Day, Saturday, November 11th. This exhibition will be located near our Grand Junction Depot and promises to be an evocative showcase of history and heroism.

Veterans, please consider this your personal invitation to step aboard the Missionary Ridge Local for a trip through the historical Tennessee landscape and through the pages of history. Reserve your spot and join us in honoring your service and that of your fellow servicemen and women.

We are honored to provide complimentary admission exclusively to Veterans at our ticket office. Additionally, our Gold Star Families will receive complimentary family admission, also available solely through our ticket office.
