Tennessee Central Railway Museum


The TC Railway Museum takes great pride in our excursion equipment. Our typical excursion train has a capacity of approximately 400 passengers, carried in air-conditioned streamlined stainless steel equipment. Our cars are equipped with Amtrak-compatible Head End Power (HEP), and the museum owns two 480 volt power cars. The Museum's buffet lounge and dining cars haves facilities for preparing everything from snacks to complete meals, and our slumbercoach contains private sleeping accommodations for up to 42 people on overnight trips. The train includes a concessions car complete with gift shop. The museum also has access to additional privately owned equipment including dome, buffet-lounge, and office cars. Excursion trains are typically pulled by vintage F7 and E8 diesel locomotives.

Steam Locomotie #576: Please note that tours of the 576 will ONLY be conducted on selected Saturdays when Nashville Steam Preservation Society volunteers are there to conduct the tours. Please see the the NSPS website for more information.
