June 15th & 29th - Join the Tennessee Valley Railroad for special Dinner Trains on the second Saturday of most months (May through September for 2013.) The trips include a three-course dining experience usually on board a restored 1924 dining car. Excursion trains will depart from Chattanooga's Grand Junction Station in the evening, traveling at a leisurely pace through portions of urban East Chattanooga before reversing direction and retuning to Grand Junction. (Depart times vary from 5:30 to 8:00 depending on trip selected.) The travel time is just right for the complete meal on a vintage dining car.
