      EVENT DETAILS
      Missionary Ridge Local

      Our most frequent service - Daily in season Missionary Ridge Local trips begin at the Grand Junction Station and take passengers along one of the original railroad lines in Chattanooga, crossing four bridges and passing through pre-Civil War Missionary Ridge Tunnel, which was completed in 1858. The train stops at East Chattanooga, allowing riders to see the locomotive rotating on a turntable and participate in a tour into the railroad restoration shop before re-boarding for the return trip. Round trip time is slightly less than an hour. The term Local refers to short line trains that were at one time a lifeline to the world from small towns around the nation. As the train rolls to a stop with the ground rumbling under your feet you feel mounting anticipation. The conductor calls the long awaited signal: All Aboard Excitement builds as passengers scurry to their seats. This was a regular occurrence 100 years ago as it is today Trains depart daily at 10:40, 12:05, 1:15, 2:25 & 3:35.
