As part of a hotel built inside a former railroad station, Chattanooga Choo Choo presents a tiny mountain countryside with 1:87 scale working model trains. The 53 m (174 ft) long space contains more than 900 m (3,000 ft) of track, 320 structures, 120 locomotives, and an array of supporting cars. Take a self-guided tour of this exhibit--one of the largest in the world of its kind--and observe the landscapes marked by hills and valleys, rivers and tunnels, and tiny trains passing through towns. You can also see some real trains that are out of use, ride a trolley, and stay in a Pullman car overnight. Discover how to plan a Chattanooga trip in just a few steps with Inspirock's itinerary builder.
Chattanooga Choo Choo Reviews
This place was the main reason while we made a stop in Chattanooga, and we were not disappointed. Great old railway station with traces back from the grand old days of railway travel. more »
What a beautiful building. As a lover of architect I was blown away inside the foyer of the building. Worth the visit. more »
We stayed in one of the train car rooms. It was very quaint. The bed was so comfortable, the water hot and the a/c cold. I loved the ambiance of the hotel. The courtyard was beautiful, loved the Frothy Monkey Cafe. Everything we needed was right there or in walking distance. Everyone was so very nice. I would definitely stay there again.
Cool atmosphere. Beds were horrible. Pillows were hard as well. Air conditioning didn't work. Very dated hotel. But the lobby and outdoors was really cool. And sleeping in the train car was fun!
