Amazing railroad I’ve been to many times Kevin T

Amazing railroad I’ve been to many times, I’ve gone since I was a little kid; Parents your kids will love it! Great for kids and adults, friendly staff, many different excursion packages and much more; so much I could make this review a mile long if I wanted. I highly recommend as a former rail camper, rider, and life long customer.

My Child Attended Their Summer Railroad Camp and Thoroughly Enjoyed Himself FloridaBelle16

my child attended their summer railroad camp and thoroughly enjoyed himself - all of the staff were wonderful and the camp ended with their great train ride out to Chickamauga. The train ride was quite lovely and we really enjoyed ourselves
