Fodor's Expert Review Great Smoky Mountains Railroad

Bryson City Historical
Train, Great Smoky Mountains Railroad, Bryson City, North Carolina

Bryson City's historic train station is the departure point for the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad. Diesel or steam locomotives take you on a 32-mile journey along the Tuckasegee River or a 44-mile trip passing through the Nantahala Gorge. Trips are offered year-round, but with very limited schedules January to March. Open-sided cars or standard coaches are ideal for picture taking as the mountain scenery glides by. Your ticket gives you free admission to the nearby Smoky Mountain Trains Museum.
