About Blue Ridge Scenic Railway
Tucked into the charming mountain village of Blue Ridge, Georgia in the lush Chattahoochee National Forest. The area is known as the "antique capital" of Georgia with friendly folks and an old time atmosphere.
Our regular 4 hour, 26 mile round trip winds along the beautiful Toccoa River for 1 hour in vintage climate-controlled or open-air rail cars.
The relaxing ride starts at the historic depot, built in 1905 in downtown Blue Ridge, then stops for a layover in the quaint sister towns of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee.
Copperhill/McCaysville is one town with two names because it is split by the GA/TN State Line. Here visitors have a 2 hour layover; plenty of time to eat lunch, shop for unique crafts and antiques, snack on ice cream, visit the model railroad layout, or walk across the old bridge in town to view the river. Then, reboard the train for the one hour return trip.
