THE MAGIC OF CHRISTMAS EXISTS ON THE HIWASSEE FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE!
The Tennessee Overhill and the Tennessee Valley Railroad are excited to announce the inaugural year for “Santa’s Hiwassee Holiday Train”. This memorable journey will take you on an incredible family adventure! If you believe in the magic of the holiday season, we invite you to board this old-fashioned train that will become a family tradition. The excursion follows along the beautiful Hiwassee River through the Cherokee National Forest. Santa will ride the train and personally greet all children, young and old. Your specialty Holiday Train ticket will include light refreshments and a keepsake souvenir for each passenger. All activities, including refreshments, storytelling and caroling will take place onboard the train. Passengers will not disembark from the train until the trip has concluded. The ride is approximately 15 miles and will last about 75 minutes. The train dates are Saturdays, November 26th and December 3rd, 10th & 17th, departing three times daily at 12 noon, 2pm & 4pm. We recommend that you arrive about 45 minutes early for boarding time. Event parking will be in front of the Savannah Oaks Winery, 404 Delano Road in Delano, south of Etowah, off 411 Hwy. There will be a short bus trip to the train boarding station.
