Railway enthusiasts will find plenty to enjoy at the train stations in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, including scenic railroads and the railroads of North Carolina Coastal Railway, which was founded in 1865 and was once the largest rail company in the country.
But there are some major attractions too, including the world-famous Railway Museum, a large, restored steam locomotive.

The first stop is the North Carolina Coast Railway Museum in Asheville.
The museum is open on the weekends and includes a railroad museum exhibit, a railroad history book and a traveling show with trains from the 19th century.
The tour is $50 for adults and $25 for children.
The park also hosts a “Railroad in the Park” that offers guided tours of historic railroad sites in the park.
It starts at the railroad museum, $10 for adults, $5 for seniors 65 and older and free for children ages 6 to 12.
The North Carolina coast railroads are operated by Southern Pacific Railway and Norfolk Southern Railway.
Southern Pacific operates more than 6,600 miles of passenger and freight railroads across North Carolina.
Norfolk Southern operates more a few dozen passenger and commercial railroads.
A map showing the number of passenger railroads on each state’s coast, showing how many trains each company has operated, is also available at the rail museum.
The Southern Pacific Railroad is the nation’s largest passenger rail company, with more than 8,400 trains on the East Coast.
Its rail line runs from Boston to Atlanta, New York City to Atlanta and to Memphis, Tennessee.
Norfolk has more than 700 railroads operating in all 50 states, and more than 4,700 miles of tracks on the entire East Coast, including major interstates and interstates in Virginia and North Carolina, according to the railroad company.
Railroads on the Great Plains The Great Plains Railroad is an affiliate of the Southern Pacific, which is the largest and most profitable railroad in the world.
The Great Northern Railroad, founded in 1871, was the largest railroad in North America, operating from St. Louis to Chicago, and had more than 2,600 locomotives, 1,000 cars and 1,100 cars of diesel fuel.
The railroad’s history dates back to 1882, when the railroad was called the Great Northern.
It was sold in 1935 to United Pacific.
The railroads have been in operation since, and today are a member of the National Railroad Passenger Corporation.
The last major Southern Pacific railroad to go bankrupt was in 1974.
Northern Pacific’s most recent bankruptcy was in 2017.
The train company has two other affiliates: Southern Pacific and Southern Pacific Railways, which operates from Chicago to New Orleans.
Southern P&O, which owns Southern Pacific’s parent company, is the sole owner of both companies.
Southern Railway is a subsidiary of Southern Pacific.
