  • We enjoyed our train ride into downtown Nashville! It drops you off right in front of Hard Rock Cafe downtown! Park at one of the station pickups and ride downtown for 2-6$ each way. My first train ri...  read more »
  • The museum works with what they have. I went on the, "Wine on the rails" to try something new. Upon arrival at the museum I had to fight for a parking space. You park on the street or wherever you can, there is no parking lot. But the museum had people directing traffic so that helped. The inside of the museum isn't a life changing event or somthing you will always treasure as a memory. As I mentioned earlier they work with what they have. The staff and train conductors are very friendly and add to a great ventage atmosphere. All in all, it was somthing new to try and the museum has potential if it had more funding.
  • We went on the Del Monico Winery excursion and loved it! Our car hosts, Don and Billy were fantastic! They are very kind and have a great deal of knowledge between them. It was a nice "different" thing to do in Nashville and well worth the $!!! James
  • Took the train to Del Monico winery. Ride was interesting. Seats are comfortable, but short on leg room. Snack bar has limited options, and they ran out of of hot food really quick. Workers are all friendly and love to talk about the train.
  • Got there about 9:15 a.m. and the museum was open, but the gate to the storage yard was locked. The person in the museum told me the volunteer who unlocks the gate does not show up at any specific time, but the gate is usually open around noon. If the museum website had stated that the access to view the equipment would not be open until noon, I would have adjusted my schedule accordingly. If you want to see the equipment, go in the afternoon. The museum itself is not that great, a couple of layouts and a few artifacts.
  • Road the Wine Train. Great trip. Very knowledgeable volunteer hosts make the trip a highlight of a trip to Nashville. When the museum is open very knowledgeable and friendly members provide a wealth of information about the equipment and local rail history.
