About the Blue Ridge Scenic Railway

In the 1990s, investors looking to preserve the significant railway history in Blue Ridge, Georgia brought our iconic train to life. Since then, the train has become the heart of this small town bringing over 70 thousand visitors to Blue Ridge and its sister towns of McCaysville, Georgia and Copperhill, Tennessee. Experience seekers and family adventurers alike find fulfillment in the charming uniqueness of our train. The railway provides an intimate view into our foothill culture while being submerged in North Georgia’s serene forestry. Our layover in McCaysville and Copperhill allows passengers time to explore small shops, local eateries, breweries and historical landmarks. Located on the Georgia and Tennessee state line, there is a unique opportunity to have one foot in both states at the same time. After the ride, walk down East Main Street to be pleasantly surprised by the diverse mix of businesses in our small town.
