This train has been climbing up Lookout Mountain since 1895. At that time, it has asserted that it is the steepest passenger train in the world. It possesses panoramic views because of its maximum grade of 72.7 percent gaining an overall altitude of almost 1,500 feet (or 450 meters).
Once the train takes you to the top of Lookout Mountain you are able to tour other attractions. These are the following: lovely, expensive homes, shops and historical sites like the Lookout Mountain Battlefield, Point Park, Cravens House, etc. Therefore, this train ride provides more than just breathtaking views of Chattanooga landscape. It allows a visitor to see the other attractions on Lookout Mountain.
After disembarking from the train, you could visit the Tennessee Civil War Museum that is in the same location, except it is at the bottom of the mountain. There are exhibits there that are created by Smithsonian designers and films made by History Channel documentarians. This museum has a million-dollar collection of artifacts and authentic letters/journals that are firsthand accounts of the lives of soldiers and their loved ones during the Civil War era.
The cost of an adult combo attraction ticket (includes Ruby Falls, Rock City and the Incline Railway) is $33, and if you buy a child’s (age 3-12) combo ticket, the cost is $16.50.
