We had "Dinner on the Diner." The meal was outstanding. Even the iced tea and lemonade were great. Service very good and the whole atmosphere of the station and the train is perfect. We would have liked a few "talking points" along the train ride about the local areas, the train, etc., because many of us were seated at a table with strangers and we needed a few conversation starters. All-in-all, though, it was a great time.

Just a reminder to folks that the TVR has other depots near Chattanooga. We love the Etowah depot with the dome car.
