The train winds through some pretty country...which would probably be spectacular for fall colors....but the train is quite rickety and dumpy feeling......the destination is boring.....

Awesome! For those people who like history, this is the place to learn about the small town history. Fun to ride the train.

Bring a lunch and/or snacks. Fun to eat on the train and plenty of pretty picnic spots at the Blue Heron mine.

It is a better experience for someone who is not from the area because I live in South East TN and riding through the area was like riding through my back yard, although, the whole train experience was a new experience.

From Our Editors

Stearns Coal & Lumber Company, which controlled more than 200 square miles of land in Kentucky and Tennessee, built the K&T Railway to navigate and export its vast mountain resources. Now owned by a nonprofit organization, the K&T Railway still chugs along the same scenic pathways, importing sightseers and history buffs to glimpse the area's coal, lumber, and railroading past. Trips down into the gorge of the Big South Fork River drop almost 600 feet of elevation in 5 miles, with the train's sturdy engine conquering the steep mountain descent and ascent. In addition to traditional trips, the railway also offers specialty excursions that include hiking trips, twilight Halloween-themed rides, and a Santa Express fueled by the burning presents of disobedient children.
