Forthright

This is a very forthright photo of one of the open rail cars of the Three Rivers Rambler, a restored steam locomotive that gives excursion trips from the waterfront at Volunteer Landing to the confluence of the Holston and French Broad Rivers where they join to form the Tennessee River. The trip is about 11 miles up and down the countryside and rivers and lasts ninety minutes. It's been years since I've taken the trip, but I can recommend it highly for some very beautiful East Tennessee scenery.

I bet that is a great trip this time of year.

Surprisingly, this is something our family has not done....and we love trains! I'm going to have to start planning a train trip on the Three Rivers Rambler!
