These 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. (Departure times is 5:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time) The travel time is just right for the complete meal in a vintage dining car.
