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.
