The Chattanooga Choo Choo

The Chattanooga Choo Choo in ChattanoogaThe Chattanooga Choo Choo in Chattanooga

Overview

From 1909 to 1970, all trains to points south passed through Chattanooga’s famous terminal, which was designed by a 24-year-old architectural student from New York. The terminal’s first plans were modified at the behest of the president of the Southern Railway System to emulate the National Park Bank of New York. Unable to compete with faster modes of travel, trains stopped running in 1970; but the terminal was saved from demolition in 1973 by a group of local investors. The1909 station, with its magnificent 85-foot free-standing dome, is the focal point of this 24-acre historical property that features exceptional accommodations, spirited dining venues, family fun, and, of course, the finest in Southern hospitality.

The Chattanooga Choo Choo boasts the world’s largest HO gauge model train display, with 120 locomotives,1,000 freight cars, 80 passenger cars,and 3,000 feet of track.
