Historical diesel locomotives depart from the former K-25, once a Manhattan Project home. The rail line, built to ferry top-secret materials to and from the compound, takes passengers past scenic hardwood forests as tour guides recount passing landmarks’ history. Due to government regulations, the citizens of certain countries may not be permitted to ride. Please call ahead to ensure eligibility if you’re not a United States citizen.<p>

Southern Appalachia Railway Museum

At Wheat Union Station, volunteers restore and maintain the Southern Appalachia Railway Museum's four diesel engines. Authentically outfitted conductors and staff keep one shiny shoe firmly in the past as air-conditioned coach cars and an open-air baggage car rumble past Poplar Creek, Watts Bar Lake, and Highway 327. The museum conducts seasonal rides and theme rides, including dinner trains and murder mysteries. Secret City Scenic Excursion train rides chug along rail lines that stretch out from K-25, a site of World War II's Manhattan Project.
