Trip Details:

Join the Tennessee Valley Railroad for special Dinner Trains on select Saturdays of most months (late March through September.) The trips include a three-course dining experience usually on board a restored 1924 dining car. Excursion trains will depart from Chattanooga's Grand Junction Station 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. Eastern and 6:00 p.m. Central Time, although the trips on Mother's Day and Father's Day leave at 6:00 p.m. Eastern and 5:00 p.m. Central Time . The travel time is just right for the complete meal in a vintage dining car.

This unique opportunity allows patrons to enjoy not only a railroad excursion trip but also fine dining en route while the train travels along the rails. Passengers are encouraged to choose their entrée as tickets are ordered.

 


Cost:

  • Eden Isle (Up to 8 Seats) - $800
