Well believe it or not in the five days that we were in Georgia we did not make it into Atlanta, but Bob did decide to take a daytrip into Chattanooga. We took April and Gabriel for a day out.We got a late start and all that we managed to do was see the famed Chattanooga Choo Choo, and we took a ride down to the waterfront on the electric bus system. Chattanooga is a beautiful city but I think that it would have been a lot nicer if it wasn't so cold. This trip was taken just before the blizzard.

One thing that is cool about these train cars is that instead of staying in the hotel guests can opt to stay in a train car instead

and a small electric car next to our gas guzzling Ford F450, that said I bet that the electric car can't tow 20,000 pounds

This train line served a very important purpose through history connecting three train lines and a river boat. It was controlled by both the North and the South during the Civil War....also Glenn Miller wrote a catchy tune about it but was not responsible for its nickname.
