Nice day long trip into the mountains via excursion train. Well versed guides telling the story of the area and RR along the way. Town of Copperhill a little disappointing... Pretty much only exists because of the RR trips.

It was great - my 2 year old grandson loves trains - he was so excited to ride on a steam engine. Was a rainy day due to Tropical Storm "Nate" but the ride was awesome.

My boys, like most, are huge fans of trains. So we decided to go here for fall break. This was their first time riding one. The missionary ridge ride is the perfect length for little ones. It was a huge hit!

A little out of the way if you're saying in downtown Chattanooga, but certainly worth the trip. The train was comfortable and the guide was knowledgeable. We chose to sit in an non-air conditioned car so our boys could put the windows down and get...More

We did not do the Summerville trip, however, I'm sure that if you call them they can tell you the type of meal for your trip.
