As a key route for passenger and industrial service in the early and mid-20th century, this historic excursion line begins on a pre-Civil War route crossing four bridges and through the Missionary Ridge Tunnel. As the train makes its way past East Chattanooga, additional sights that can be viewed from the train include the Chattanooga Zoo established in 1937 and the Warner Park fields, previously called “Olympia Park” near the turn of the 20th century
We do not have a formal dress code for the dinner train, but most passengers seem to enjoy dressing up a bit. We do ask that gentlemen remove their hats while dining on the train.
Historic rail cars and stations were built before the advent of technology accommodating people with special needs. Our rail cars were not designed to accommodate wheelchairs safely. The ADA recognizes the limitations of such historic rail equipment and expressly exempts these trains and stations from accessibility requirements. Though we cannot accommodate wheelchair access within our historical passenger cars, all persons who can board the train themselves are welcome to ride.
Chattanooga has many options such as campgrounds, bed & breakfast locations, and hotels. See the Chattanooga Area Convention & Visitors Bureau website for more information: www.visitchattanooga.com. Click here for information on planning your stay.

Everything was lovely: the staff, the experience, the wine. One recommendation: serve dessert on the return trip. It was a lot of food in a short period of time that I didn't have enough time to digest and felt too full.

Wine Train was a Christmas gift from our son. When we arrived for the Wine Train, our son and his girlfriend surprised us by being there to make the trip with us! Wine Train immediately accommodated us by rearranging everything so we could be a table for 4 instead of two tables of two. It was a magical experience with the people we love, great food, great wine, great service, great experience —on a train! You’ve simply got to see Gage pour coffee on a moving train!
Business Response:
Thank you Mark & Mary for sharing your experience. We enjoyed serving you all on the rails and hope to see you again soon! Gage says thanks as well! Cheers! - John

This was an awesome experience!! The service was outstanding. It was a bit difficult to hear everything our guide was saying. I wanted to hear every word! The only suggestion with food was temperature of rolls - I understand it would be difficult to have them hot... otherwise I was so pleased with my beef selection and dessert was delicious. Will be sharing our experience on facebook for folks in our area here in Alabama.Thank you for this evening where we celebrated 2 special birthdays.

Thank you for a wonderful experience. It was really neat. The food could have been better. The soup tasted like tomato water, not bisque. The green beans were not fresh. The dessert was not homemade. The wine was excellent!!!! I own a bakery in Nashville so I picked up on these things. Details matter and homemade (from a good cook!!) is always the best way to go!!!!
