Misty Mountain Railroad Tours! – Fun Family Activity – Blairsville

The Mountain Life Team Blogger November 2, 2012

It is amazing to see all the intricate details that talented people can create to look like towns and small villages.  If you enjoy that and most of all seeing model trains, you should visit Union County’s Misty Mountain Railroad My son has always been fascinated with trains and this would be the place to take him!  This is a good family activity that little and big kids (like myself!) will enjoy!

Misty Mountain Model Railroad display is the largest privately owned O-gauge train display in the country.  You will see a 3,400 square foot layout with 14 O-gauge Lionel trains!  They will be traveling over 12 different bridges, 4 trestles and through 15 tunnels!  The layout is a fantasy journey of various sites and cities in the Southern Appalachian Mountains.

Good news also is they ask for a $5 donation for ages 16 and over.  Children are free.  Check their website for times of tours.  I know one is today, Friday at 2pm!  Hope you enjoy the fantasy land!  During your Blairsville visit, enjoy a casual lunch or dinner at Hole in the Wall.  You won’t be disappointed!
