Spent 11/10 chasing the 4501 to Summerville. Great way to spend the day and experience the amazing power of a steam locomotive. This is a place to be treasured for rail-fans and history buffs!

We spent 3 days touring Chattanooga and decided to do this short train ride. It was nice, but just a bit too short and not much to see.

We had a great time riding the old train. lots of smoke and sounds. Got to see how the operation works and viewed lots of train equipment. Great day.

My wife and I went for 9 hour trip Chattanooga to Summerville Ga. We had a great time. We have took this trip 4 times and it gets better each time. I learned very interesting facts about train and area. Must do this if you get a chance. They have a great crew and that truly made trip.

We took the day trip from Chattanooga to Summerville on Sunday. The train follows a historic route from Grand Junction Station in Chattanooga to Summerville, Georgia; crossing the state line in Rossville, traveling past Chickamauga-Chattanooga National Military Park and through Chickamauga, Rock Spring, LaFayette, Trion, and into Summerville. The scenery is nice at some points and disappointing at others. The trees are starting to show the colors of fall which made the right nice. We stopped in Summerville and had the Sunday Special which was good! Afterwards we walked around until it was time to board the train to come back the other way. The town was quiet since it was a Sunday. The return ride was not as easy going because the train kept coming to a stop and the conductors had a time figuring out what the problem was. You have an option of purchasing food on the train or eating at the Train stop in Summerville. The trip is informative and worth the ride.

Enjoyed the Missionary Ridge train ride, especially the turntable demo. Love learning these little bits of history. Be sure to enter the address in your GPS though, because if you just type in the name of the museum it'll take you to the wrong place!

My 5 year old had a blast! I would recommend this for anyone with children. The price was affordable and it is well thought out and planned. It is also not too long a ride. This is good with kids because their attention span is so short. There were picnic tables and a small museum. Had a great time!

A must do if you have never been on a train. It was fun and an experience. The train kind of had a weird smell to it though.

We took the all day train to Sommerville, Ga and ate lunch on the train. The lunch was very good and service was great. This train trip is not the Duragno-Silverton, but a fun thing to do nonetheless. Met a lot of nice people on the train. They even did a run by....we recommend this if you like steam trains.

Get there early. Crowded. Ok train ride. The yard with the trains is great. The turntable is worth watching for sure
