Welcome

A great family adventure on the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway  starts at the historic depot in downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia. The train winds alongside the beautiful Toccoa River with one stop in the twin border towns of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee. Our regular 4 hour trips  (3 1/2 hours trips on Sundays) are 26 miles, round trip, winding along the beautiful Toccoa River for one hour (each way) in vintage climate controlled rail cars  or open air rail cars.

Trip Description

Our Depot is tucked in the charming mountain village of Blue Ridge, Georgia within the lush Chattahoochee National Forest. This area is known as the “antique capital” of Georgia with friendly folks and an old time atmosphere. Total excursion is 26 miles round trip. Passengers can choose from vintage climate controlled rail cars or open air rail cars. The relaxing ride starts at the historic depot, built in 1905 in downtown Blue Ridge, then makes one stop 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, where visitors have a two hour layover (one & half layover on Sunday); plenty of time to eat lunch, shop for unique crafts and antiques, snack on ice cream, or walk across the old bridge in town to view the river. Then, re-board the train for the one hour return trip.
