  • Wonderful experience. We attended a birthday party there and it was one of the best we've been to. The staff was very helpful. I highly recommend even if you're not a huge train fan. Great day adventure. Best when it's good weather out so you can check out all the trains.

  • Awesome place! Great for train enthusiasts of all ages. I have taken my 3 year old twice, once for a steam train ride and another for the Eerie Express Halloween event. The staff is professional and embodies the southern charm. Great history and incredible machines to witness still operating! A must see!

  • Took the family here last night for the first time and my 3 year old really enjoyed it... The inside of the train was decorated nicely and we were offered hot chocolate and cookies.. the train had story time with the children and had time to spend with santa.. I really enjoyed the train since I've never been on one... It was just a nice family experience.. the only down side was the price was kinda steep but my daughter enjoyed it.

  • A train ride with Santa on the North Pole Express. It was short and sweet and magical for my 5 year old granddaughter. My 12 year old liked it too, but was harder to admit to it. We had hot chocolate, a cookie, a story, saw wonderful Christmas lights and picked up Santa and Mrs. Claus. They rode back to the station with us and sat and spoke to every child. We were given souvenirs and momentos... Even a Christmas jingle Bell. The Tennessee Valley Railroad REALLY goes above and beyond to make this a memorable experience. I had no idea, but they have a great little gift shop in the depot. If anyone has a train fan friend or family... You can find an excellent gift for this person in the gift shop. There are many other experiences offered here. There are dining cars and holiday specials.

  • We had a terrific experience doing their Santa train ride. The performers were so personable and involved. Served cookies and chocolate milk, and gave everyone a souvenir bell. Truly was one of the more meaningful trips we have had as a family, especially at Christmas. Will definitely come back next year. One word of advice though: the road leading to the depot is 40 mph. But there is a SERIOUSLY high railroad crossing that goes over the road. You hit that right and you will RIP the bottom of your vehicle out! Had to lock down to keep from hitting it. Just...be aware!
