In 1988, many entities had come together to form the Great Smoky Mountains Railway, which then began running passenger excursions. Rolling stock for the GSMR was purchased from various railroads around the nation. The Dillsboro to Nantahala route was one of the most scenic on the Murphy Branch and the excursion trains caught on right away.
The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad passenger excursions take you from our historic depot in Bryson City, through the beautiful countryside of Western North Carolina to various destinations. Our variety of passenger train options and special event trains makes us perfect for making memories and experience the true form of railroading!
