Excursion Train... "Blue Ridge Scenic Railway"

Blue Ridge Scenic Railway     Nestled in the mountains of Georgia in the Chattahoochee National Forest, historic Blue Ridge awaits you and  your family.   Known for friendly folks and old time atmosphere, it's definitely a place to visit. Blue Ridge has  been called the "antique capital" of north west Georgia. Rent a cabin, climb a mountain, hike a trail and ride the  Blue Ridge Scenic Railway.

    The train route consists of a 26-mile round trip through historic Murphy Junction along the beautiful  Toccoa River. This railroad was built over 100 years ago and is the only mainline railroad excursion service  based in Georgia.

    Each trip begins at the depot in Blue Ridge, Georgia and includes a stop in McCaysville, Georgia and  Copperhill, Tennessee. which permits passengers to disembark and have an hour  and  one half layover,  allowing time to have lunch, do some shopping, or  just  to explore the two cities. (Sunday's layovers are   only 1 hour.)  Each round trip takes approximately 3 hours.

    The last passenger train to operate over this line was a one-time special trip that ran in the 1960's.  The route was originally built as the narrow-gauge Marietta & North Georgia Railroad. Construction  began in Marietta in 1877 and reached Blue Ridge in 1886.

    The Blue Ridge Scenic Railway ticket office is located at 241 Depot Street in the heart of downtown Blue Ridge, Georgia.
