Misty Mountain Model Railroad is America's largest O-gauge train display: a 3,400-square-foot layout with 14 O-gauge trains traveling on a mile of track over 12 bridges and four trestles and through 15 tunnels.

Its creator, "Engineer" Charles Griffin opens the Misty Mountain Railroad  year-round for a one-hour tour beginning promptly at 2 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays. Friday tours are added in May and continue through December.

The layout is a fantasy journey through sights and cities in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Highlights include a 6-foot bridge that rises to allow visitors to enter the display and a 17-foot trestle recreated in Tallulah Gorge, the deepest gorge east of the Mississippi. Some 300 pieces from Department 56 are sprinkled throughout communities such as Gainesville (GA), Copperhill (TN), Helen (GA), Kennesaw (GA), Atlanta and Biltmore Estates (NC).

Group tours (20 or more) by special arrangements.
