Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum

Nice place to spend the afternoon. Lots of train engines and passenger cars on display. The main attraction is a one-hour train ride in a 50’s vintage train.

Some photos.

  1. Great shots, and details/info! That’s a big depot, and brick…any idea what year it was built? I tried to read the sign, but the words blurred when I zoomed in.
