Saturday, Oct 20th - 11:30am - 1:00pm
COOKEVILLE- All Aboard! The trains are coming to Cookeville!
Two train excursions from the Tennessee Central Railway Museum in Nashville will
be making their way to Cookeville on Saturday, October 20 and Saturday, October 27
bringing an estimated 300 passengers to the streets of Cookeville’s Westside to eat and
shop for around two-and-a-half hours. Passengers will be able to enjoy the fall foliage
during the peak of the season throughout their trip from Nashville.
Excursion trips from Cookeville to Algood will also take place for those looking for a
shorter, one-and-a-half hour adventure. The train will board at the Cookeville Depot at
11:30am and return at approximately 1:00pm.
Advanced ticket purchase is suggested as the train fills up quickly. Tickets for the Algood
excursions may be purchased at the Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce
located at One West First Street in Cookeville. Tickets cost $30 for dome seats, $15 for
coach seats for ages 13 and up, $10 for ages 4 to 12, and ages 3 and under ride free in
an adult’s lap.
“We welcome everyone to come to the Westside and greet the passengers as they
arrive from Nashville,” said Laura Canada, Chamber vice president and Convention &
Visitors Bureau director. “This is an exciting experience for all who come out to watch
and ride the train, and it is a great opportunity to be a tourist in your own town.”
Don’t miss the opportunity to ride a one-of-a-kind traditional American streamlined
passenger train. For more information about the Algood Train Excursions or ticket
