Celebrate Valentine’s Day with a Romantic Train Ride!

The trip includes a four-course dining experience on board a restored 1924 dining car. The excursion trains depart from Chattanooga’s Grand Junction Station, traveling at a leisurely pace through portions of urban East Chattanooga before reversing direction and returning to Grand Junction. The travel time is just right for a complete meal on a vintage dining car.

Our Valentine’s Dinner Trains are one of our most popular excursions and for good reason! Our Dining Car Superintendent and his team of Dining Car Stewards and Chefs provide exceptional customer service and delicious food all prepared and served in historic dining cars. A meal on the Dinner Train is like stepping back in time and the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion!

The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum 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. We encourage you to choose your entrée when booking your tickets. You may choose from true vintage dining in the Dining Car (four to a table) or Pullman Car Clover Colony (two per table for a slight premium charge).

My partner and I got the Valentine’s day tickets as a present Myrandia L

My partner and I got the Valentine’s day tickets as a present, we didn’t know much about the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum, until yesterday! It was such an amazing experience, the service was amazing, you are able to venture the cart and while riding, and it was nice to know the food was made on the train! Even as a picker eater I loved almost everything! The only thing I would say is if it is chilly outside bring a coat! ❤️
