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 Fridays and Saturdays, March through October. 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 times are Fridays at 6:30 pm and Saturdays at 5:30 pm and 8:00 pm. 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.
