A 19th century tunnel
We had seen this tunnel many years ago but had not entered it except for a short distance. So when I learned that a tour was now offered, I felt another visit would be in order. There is a visitor center which features a museum in one large room. It is here that you pay for the tour. Our first stop was a recreation of a general store with products on shelves and cases from various eras. This building also served as a post office. The next stop was the Clisby Austin House which served as a hospital and field headquarters during the Civil War. The highlight of the tour was the former railroad tunnel which was important in the Great Locomotive Chase. Two crews worked from either end in building this tunnel. You can still see some of the tool marks from that time. When you reach the end, the cart is turned around for another pass through the tunnel and back to the visitor center. Jason was our guide and he was well informed. The tour lasts about one hour.
If you are interested in seeing the locomotives involved, the General is in Kennesaw at the Southern Museum of Civil War and Locomotive History and is very well preserved. The Texas is located at the Atlanta History Center.

Amazing! On Friday and Saturday’s they give guided tours for $12 adult. The tour was so much fun. You ride in a golf cart to the tunnel, the general store and the house that was used as a civil war hospital. They let you take pictures and have stops along the way. They also have a museum you can go through. Highly recommend this.

very satisfied
My husband and I wanted to visit this historic site for some time. We finally had an opportunity to go. It was wonderful. I would definitely recommend the guided tour vs' self tour. Jennifer was our guide and gave us the most fabulous and very informative tour. One of the best we've been on.

Great history lesson

We hit the place on a day when most of the staff was off at training so we waited a while for a guide to show up. But it worth the wait to ride through the old tunnel and hear how it was built. Also the great train robbery story was terrific

Nice stop during trip North.
My son and I were on a road trip from South Florida to Michigan when we happened across the W&A Railroad Tunnel Museum. We did a self-guided tour and enjoyed the train station and displays of historical railroad and Civil Wat artifacts. We walked the tunnel and (as opposed to golf cart ride), nice walk that was interesting.
Only wish we had seen a CSX freight train go by during our visit.
I would highly recommend this museum to those that have an interest in southern railroads and the Civil War.

Railroad Tunnel Tour
The visit to the Western and Atlantic Railroad Museum included a neat ride through a 1447 foot railroad tunnel that was built in 1850. The tunnel when completed permitted direct railroad service from Atlanta to Chattanooga by steam train. The museum held many historical artifacts. The tour guide provided much information, making it an enjoyable visit.

Interesting historic tunnel

The museum and tour are worth the $12 fee if you like historical stuff like this. The tunnel was pretty chilly so you may want to bring in a sweatshirt. We enjoyed the old house and the museum.

This was amazing
Sometimes, privately owned historic sites are just amazing. We went on this tour. It was a small place. Local people do the tour. We were the only people there and had a tour guide that drove us through the tunnel. We spent more than an hour with a very educated local gentleman that helped us understand what happened there during the Civil War. We learned so much. You should do this.

For the discerning civil war explorer, you need to see this fun and interesting find in Tunnel Hill. The history here is vast and spans before the war and after. The tunnel is fun and spooky. This whole area is wonderfully historical.

Judy was an exceptional tour guide. She made us feel like family and answered our questions and took time to show us the tunnel and the unique points of building it. I agree with her- I doubt there are many that would work and build something like this today. You can almost hear the trains going through it.
