Smoky Mountain Trains is more than an ordinary museum. With its collection of 7,000 Lionel™ engines, cars and accessories, impressive operating layout, children’s activity center, and gift/toy shop, Smoky Mountain Trains has something for everyone.  Half of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park is in North Carolina, and most of that is in Swain County. Popular areas include Deep Creek, Lakeview Drive, Mountain Farm Museum, Mingus Mill, Smokemont, Clingmans Dome, Cataloochee Valley and the north shore of Fontana Lake. Our 12-passenger Jet Boats take all ages for an exhilarating and scenic ride on beautiful Lake Fontana.   Along the way you will do the unique Hamilton spin, view a 50-foot water fall and possibly a Bald Eagle or family of otters.
