Misty Mountain Train Museum
off Town Creek School Rd
Blairsville, GA 30512
This is the largest privately owned O-gauge railroad in the country. Misty Mountain Model Railroad features a 3,400-square-foot layout with 14 O-gauge Lionel trains traveling on a mile of track over 12 bridges, four trestles and through 15 tunnels.
The layout is a fantasy journey through sights and cities in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Highlights include a 6-foot bridge that raises 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).
The Misty Mountain Railroad is offered year-round for a one-hour tour beginning promptly at 1:30 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays, Friday and Saturdays. Start with a walkthrough of the huge collection of trains, an overview of the railroad, and then the model railroad upstairs.
