Take an extended day trip excursion through the lower Hiwassee River Gorge! This train travels a longer distance through Turtletown, Ducktown, and on to the former mining town of Copperhill.
This 56 seat lightweight coach was built by American Car & Foundry in 1947 for the Central of Georgia Railroad. The car was the 3rd in a class of cars built for use on the “Nancy Hanks II”, a passenger train running between Atlanta, GA and Savannah, GA, along with coaches 390, 661, and 907, also in the TVRM collection. The 662 saw many years of service for the Central of Georgia Railroad and successor Southern Railway. The car would then be donated to the Southeastern Railway Museum in 1980. The car is on lease from the Southeastern Railway Museum for use on our Hiwassee River Rail Adventure trains.
