The adventure continues! Cabarets and Incline Railroads!
"Chattanooga Choo Choo" is a big-band/swing
song which was featured in the 1941 movie
Sun Valley Serenade. Today, trains have pride
of place in Chattanooga's former Terminal
Station. Once owned and operated by the
Southern Railway, the station was saved from
demolition after the withdrawal of passenger
rail service in the early 1970s, and it is now part
of a resort complex, including the Chattanooga
Choo-Choo Hotel, and numerous historical
railway exhibits. Hotel guests can stay in half of
a restored passenger railway car. We ate at
the Station House (which is housed in a former
baggage storage area). The entertainment was
great, all the waiters and waitresses perform
and the food was really good too.
We visited Lookout Mountain by riding the
world’s steepest railroad! The trolley-style rail
cars carried us cloud high for a mile with a
breathtaking 72.7% grade of the track near the
top. Incline Railway has been one of
Chattanooga's most unique attractions since
1895. Once at the top there were breathtaking
views and interesting Civil War
some beautiful homes!
