Silver Diner at Chattanooga Choo Choo, Chattanooga

2.2
#5 of 8 in Museums in Chattanooga
As part of a hotel built inside a former railroad station, Silver Diner at 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.

Where to stay in Chattanooga

Centrally located Chattanooga hotels offer comfortable rooms just a walk from the city's best shops, restaurants, and museums. Staying in the middle of everything can cost a bundle, so if you're traveling on a budget or simply prefer a bed and breakfast atmosphere, consider staying farther away from the central part of townwhile on holiday. Most budget-friendly inns located along the free electric shuttle route servicing the downtown area offer all the comforts of home at the fraction of the price charged by the big chains.
