All Aboard the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway!
Experience living history on a train ride beside the beautiful Toccoa River.

The town of Blue Ridge is a railroad town, with the historic depot at its center. Step back in time as you and your family enjoy a four-hour railway excursion along the beautiful Toccoa River from Blue Ridge to McCaysville. Choose an authentic indoor car, open rail car or Premier Class. Your destination is the mountain town of McCaysville, Georgia, sister city to Copperhill, Tennessee. During your two-hour layover, have lunch and take a walk across the "Blue Line" on the street and you're in Tennessee! You can actually stand in two states at once if you have one foot on the Georgia side and the other on the Tennessee side!

The rail adventure is a two hour 26 mile round trip, with a two hour layover to explore. The train runs from March through December, on weekends until June then daily through July, except for Wednesdays. In the peak month of October, trips are also daily.

The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway was recently designated one of the top five attractions for experiencing fall color by "Southern Living" magazine. Fall foliage rides run during the month of October through mid November. Other seasonal trains include the Easter Eggspress, Pumpkin Express, and the Santa Train from Thanksgiving until Christmas.
