Step back in time as you and your family board the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway to 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, a 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 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. Visit their website Blue Ridge Scenic Railway for an updated schedule of trips and events.
Be sure to check out their most popular excursions the Fall Foliage Train Rides and of course their Christmas Holiday Trains.
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 October through mid-November, Firecracker Special, and the Santa Train from Thanksgiving until Christmas.
