Chattanooga's Steam Locomotives

Central of Georgia locomotive no. 349 at the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum

This Tennessee city adjoining Georgia’s northern boundary is home to two major railroad attractions: the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum and the Chattanooga Choo Choo.

Included in a wide variety of engines and rolling stock at the TVRM are Central of Georgia steam locomotive No. 349 and several Central cars.

TVRM passenger trains at the museum are now pulled by No. 630, a 1904 ALCO 2-8-0 built for Southern Railway. No. 610, a Baldwin-Lima-Hamilton 2-8-0 built in 1952 for the U.S. Army, is currently out of service awaiting a major overhaul.

A wood-burning Baldwin 2-6-0 steam engine is on display at Chattanooga Terminal Station, now a hotel, restaurant, and shopping complex called the Chattanooga Choo Choo. The locomotive served the Smoky Mountain Railroad (Knoxville, Sevierville & Eastern) in the 1940s.
