  • The train museum is a very interesting sight to see. I really enjoyed the interactive train sets that I was able to play with. 
  • First its 9 bucks if you do this alone but it comes with the Great Smokey railroad. Its a ok collection of trains and models but there are only 2-3 railroad setups the main one is good the others just...  read more »
  • We were quite impressed at the miniature railroad display. There were many tunnels small towns, even a miniature drive-in theatre showing a movie. The closer you look, the more you'll find. Miniature ...  read more »
  • Great ride and awesome scenery. VERY friendly crew ! I'll be back !!
  • Must see if you love trains !!!
  • Compared to the train ride in Blue Ridge, this one stinks. The towns are dumpy, and the employees are rude and uncaring. The windows on the train are small. It is run by a "for-profit" company, which has resulted in cost cutting and lousy service.
  • Great little shop! Offered coffee and fudge for very reasonable prices. Also had many gifts available in the store. The part I liked the most was the huge variety of jellies, jams, and butters! They were delicious and make great gifts.
  • The train ride is in one word excellent with almost constant rivers or lake views. It is well worth the price. We took coach-half price of 1st class, meals is not included. The seats were cushioned and reclined with great leg room. Staff is attentive and there was an onboard banjo band walking around. There was plenty of dining opportunities. Bring your own or onboard hot food- similar to fast food, but huge burgers or value priced dogs, also beer and wine. There is an hour break where there are several restaurants also. Views are great, the windows opened with nice breeze in 70s sunny weather. Ceiling fans also, not sure if that car is air conditioned. With 3.5 hours of actual time riding it is a good deal at little over $14 an hour on vintage cars. Coupons are available. Get there early and find street parking without 2 hour limits to save $5 they charge for parking.
