Trip Details:

These vintage trains follow a historic route from Grand Junction Station in Chattanooga to Summerville, Georgia; crossing the state line in Rossville, traveling past Chickamauga-Chattanooga National Military Park and through Chickamauga, Rock Spring, LaFayette, Trion, and into Summerville. Departure for the all-day trip is 9:00 a.m. Eastern and 8:00 a.m. Central Time with return approximately 6:00 p.m. Eastern and 5:00 p.m. Central Time.

For Autumn trips, fall colors are usually a highlight outside the train, while a dining car luncheon, complete with chinaware, is served inside dining car Travelers Fare. During the approximately 75-minute layover in Summerville, passengers will be able to explore the town and adjacent Dowdy Park with its historic turntable. The locomotive will be rotated on the turntable, serviced and watered for its return trip to Chattanooga.  Motive power is expected to be recently-restored ex-Southern #4501. 

**Summerville does not have a ramp so passengers would not be able to exit the train by a ramp. Individuals wanting to exit the train would have to be able to step up and down from a train car. This is not a problem for TVRM staff, however, the customer may wish to consider this when making their dining plans. 

 


Cost:

  • Premium Observation - $190 per ticket (include both breakfast and lunch in the dining car. )
  • Pullman Compartment - $120 per ticket (include both breakfast and lunch in the dining car. )
  • Pullman Section - $115 per ticket (include both breakfast and lunch in the dining car. )
  • Coach with Meal - $90 per ticket
  • Coach (No Meal) - $70 per ticket
  • Adjustable Window Coach (windows can be raised, no air conditioning) - $70 per ticket (For seats in the Ajustable Window Car, lunch can be added during the checkout process for an additional $20 per person.) **Note: Adjustable window car is at one end of the train on the way down to Summerville then on othe other end during the return to Chattanooga. Enthusiast will enjoy the railroad sounds when closest to the locomotive (whistle at crossings, bell ringing, and various track noise). It may be too much for some individuals.**
