The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum offers special Dinner Trains during the Valentine season.


Trip Details:

Trips include a four-course dining experience on board a restored 1924 dining car. The excursion trains typically depart from our Chattanooga Grand Junction Station (4119 Cromwell Rd, Chattanooga, TN 37421) at 5:30 p.m. and again at 8:00 p.m., traveling at a leisurely pace through portions of urban Chattanooga, passing Warner Park Zoo and Chattanooga National Cemetery. The train travels about seven miles from the depot and then returns along the same route, taking about two hours overall.


As an alternative, Monthly Dinner Train information is found here.

TVRM is pleased to offer this unique opportunity for patrons to enjoy not only a rail 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. Patrons may select their entrée of carved English roast of beef topped with a Madeira sauce, roasted stuffed breast of chicken with a wild mushroom cream sauce or cumberland sauce, or crusted filet of salmon with a béarnaise sauce or red pepper butter. (Menu items mentioned are examples, but there will be beef, chicken, fish, and vegetarian main entrées. Presentation is subject to adjustment by our chef.)

In addition, patrons may choose from true vintage dining in the Dining Car (four to a table) at $170 per couple, or limited accommodations are available in a 1920's-era Pullman Car with tables for two at $180 per couple. For small groups, Presidential Office Car #98 (the Eden Isle) represents the ultimate in rail travel and is offered for private charter. The cost of $800 allows a group of up to eight (8) persons to travel in this opulent car, which boasts a dining room, lounge area, and rear observation platform. These fortunate passengers will dine at their own private table aboard the special car. This option can be reserved for only one group per evening.


Ticket Information:

Tickets for the excursion and dinner start at $170 per couple. Tickets are expected to sell out in advance. Reservations are recommended and should be purchased in advance to avoid disappointment.

Please note that smoking, alcoholic beverages, and pets are NOT allowed on any train. Thanks for your cooperation.


FAQs:
