Chattanooga Choo Choo, Chattanooga
(2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
As part of a hotel built inside a former railroad station, Chattanooga Choo Choo presents a tiny mountain countryside with 1:87 scale working model trains. The 53 m (174 ft) long space contains more than 900 m (3,000 ft) of track, 320 structures, 120 locomotives, and an array of supporting cars. Take a self-guided tour of this exhibit--one of the largest in the world of its kind--and observe the landscapes marked by hills and valleys, rivers and tunnels, and tiny trains passing through towns. You can also see some real trains that are out of use, ride a trolley, and stay in a Pullman car overnight. Using our online itinerary creator, Chattanooga attractions like Chattanooga Choo Choo can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Pretty interesting to go to the Chu-Chu. There's an exposition of different cars in different years. On perronam you can walk and sit on a bench. Well here in the spring and fall when not too hot and not too cold. Around a lot of good restaurants and cafes.
