    Ride this train almost year round. Especially great for the kids during Polar Express and Thomas The Tank Engine runs.

    The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad offers several different rides taking you on a beautiful sight seeing expedition along with some dinner rides and Seasonal excitement including the Polar Express. With stops along the way for lunch it is a great experience for adults and children alike.

    Open air cars depart from Bryson City for a leisurely ride through the nearby towns and wooded areas.

    Capture the spirit of the Carolina mountains as you ride in comfort on a Great Smoky Mountains Railroad excurison. Tickets should be ordered in advance for choice seating. Bryson City/Dillsboro, NC 800-872-4681 A nice afternoon to remember and just approximately a little over an hour's drive to your destination.

    We went on the Natahala Gorge ride. The train left the station for a 4 and half hour ride through the mountains next to lake Fontana and Natahala River. In the summer months, there are kayakers and white water river rafters riding on the river next to the train, very entertaining to watch.
    We took the open air Premium coach. It was adults only and included assigned seats, a souvenier drink mug wth unlimited refills, a souvenier tote bag, a fruit smoothie, lunch and dessert!
    Great ride, we will do this again!

    You should really take the time and make the drive over the big mountain to the Great Smoky Mountain Railroad. It is beautiful scenery all the way and it is in Bryson City, North Carolina. It's not too terribly far. We really liked this!

    The trains were having a little New Year's break at the Bryson City Depot, but this allowed us to get up close and personal and take some great photos. All kinds of interesting, well preserved carriages, engines & cabooses!

    Although expensive for a typical train ride, the Polar Express is a memory making trip!
