Blue Ridge Scenic Railway

Blue Ridge Scenic Railway Review

Ride the rails on a four-hour, 26-mi round-trip excursion along the Toccoa River. The trip includes a stop in McCaysville, smack on the Georgia–Tennessee state line. Several restaurants, shops, and galleries are open during the two-hour layover. The train, which has open Pullman cars and is pulled by diesel engines, is staffed with friendly volunteer hosts. The ticket office, now on the National Register of Historic Places, dates from 1905 and was originally the depot of the L&N Railroad. Children of all ages enjoy the ride. In summer you may want to consider the air-conditioned coaches. Raft-and-rail ($68-$83) and raft-and-tubing ($50) packages are available.
