Holiday Magic Aboard the Dome Lounge-Observation Car

This holiday season, the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum offers a unique and festive experience: a nightcap with St. Nick aboard our newly rolled out Chesapeake and Ohio Dome Lounge-Observation car #1877. This one-hour train ride is not just a journey; it’s a celebration of holiday spirit and joy.

As you step aboard the beautifully decorated car, you’ll be welcomed into a world of festive cheer. The ride is adorned with all the bright trimmings of the season, creating a perfect backdrop for your holiday memories. Comfortable seating and panoramic views from the dome coach ensure a relaxing and delightful experience.

The experience includes two complimentary drinks, allowing you to toast to the season as you travel through Chattanooga area. A sweet and savory treat box will tantalize your taste buds, adding an extra layer of indulgence to your evening.

But the magic doesn’t stop there. Each guest receives a souvenir bell to remember the journey by, and a keepsake boarding pass as a memento of this special night. And, of course, what holiday train ride would be complete without a visit from Santa himself? St. Nick will be making his rounds, adding a touch of enchantment to your experience.

Please note that guests will need to ascend stairs to board this trip. While a ramp is available, it requires walking through two cars to reach the designated dome coach. Ages 21 and up only.

This holiday nightcap experience on our newest dome coach is a must-do this festive season. It’s an opportunity to create lasting memories and enjoy the holiday season in a unique and delightful way.
