Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum remains closed through April 30. In keeping with the Social Distance Guidelines suggested Sunday, March 29 we are extending our suspension of all public rides with a hoped for reopen date of May 4th. Dinner, North Georgia and Hiwassee trains however, will remain closed with no specific reopening date at this time. Plans now are to begin operating the Missionary Ridge Local on May 4th & 5th. We will be offering to transfer ticket holders, through April 30, to future train rides or a refund. Updates to our schedule of rides will be posted on our website at tvrail.com and on social media channels.

Trip Details:

This unique opportunity allows patrons to enjoy not only a railroad excursion trip but also fine dining enroute while the train travels along the rails. Join the Tennessee Valley Railroad for special dinner trains on select Saturdays, March through September. The trips include a three-course dining experience onboard restored dining cars. Dinner trains depart from Chattanooga's Grand Junction depot in the evening, traveling at a leisurely pace through portions of urban East Chattanooga before reversing direction and returning to Grand Junction. The standard departure time is 7:00 P.M. The travel time is just right for the complete meal aboard the moving train.

*All times Eastern Standard*

Fare

We do not have a dress code for the dinner train, but most passengers seem to enjoy dressing up a bit. The trains boards at our Grand Junction depot, located at 4119 Cromwell Road in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Chattanooga is in the Eastern Time Zone. Please check the calendar for dates of operation and departure times.
