A Unique Excursion with Fine Dining
This unique opportunity allows you to enjoy not only a historic train ride but also a delicious three-course meal served onboard restored dining cars. Join the Tennessee Valley Railroad for dinner trains on select Fridays and Saturdays, March through October. The trips include a dining experience that will transport you back in time.
Our Dinner Trains are one of our most popular excursions and for good reason! Our Dining Car Superintendent and his team of Dining Car Stewards and Chefs provide exceptional customer service and delicious food all prepared and served in historic dining cars. A meal on the Dinner Train is a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion or simply enjoy a unique dining experience.
Dinner trains depart from Chattanooga’s Grand Junction depot in the evening, traveling at a leisurely pace through portions of urban East Chattanooga before reversing direction and returning to Grand Junction. The standard departure times are select Fridays and Saturdays at 6:30 PM. The travel time is just right for the complete meal aboard the moving train.
