A Unique Excursion with Fine Dining

This unique opportunity allows you to enjoy not only a railroad excursion trip but also fine dining en route while the train travels along the rails. Join the Tennessee Valley Railroad for dinner trains on select Fridays and Saturdays, March through October. The trips include a three-course dining experience onboard restored dining cars.

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 like stepping back in time and the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion!

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.
