The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad traces 53 miles through the scenic hills, forests, and blue-green waters of western North Carolina. Seated in a standard-class cabin, passengers in vintage coaches from the 1920s travel the historical Murphy Branch line as they peer through wide windows at panoramic views and hitchhiking songbirds. Excursions stop for 1.5 hours at Nantahala Gorge and its outdoor center, where guests can shop, sightsee, or nibble on meals by the river. Riders then hop on for the return trip past the Little Tennessee and Nantahala Rivers, as their massive, maroon-painted steel pony chugs its way along the rails. Riders can climb on board Saturdays in February, Fridays and Saturdays in March, or Tuesday–Saturday during April. Guests also have the option to upgrade from standard-class tickets to first class for an additional cost.

Very nice staff, laid back and jovial. Thoroughly enjoyed the train ride and got to ask the conductor some questions afterward which was really fun. The train museum is a ice touch and the displays are amazing!
