Historic High Country
A Fundraiser to benefit Tri-State Model Railroaders and the Historic Mineral Bluff Depot! A five-mile round-trip ride by railroad motor car traveling through the Iron Bridge over the beautiful Toccoa River to the Hogback Road crossing at Murphy Junction, then returning over the bridge back to the Historic Mineral Bluff Depot. Then take a ride on the genuine Railroad Hand Car! Fun for all ages.
Visit inside the Depot and see the progress being made on our large “HO Scale” model railroad based on the L&N Railroad’s “Old Line” from Atlanta to Etowah, Tennessee and the branch line through Mineral Bluff to Murphy, North Carolina. Come see what’s new!
Our sincere thanks to the following, for without their help, these trips would not be possible:
Georgia DOT and Georgia Northeastern Railroad/Blue Ridge Scenic Railway.
