The trolley station at the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hilton Hotel. Chattanooga Tennesee USA. May 1990.
I took this photo on a May 1990 Family vacation to the Smokey Mountains
in the States of Tennesee and North Carolina. Seen here in downtown
Chattanooga Tennesee, is the Chattanooga Choo Choo Hilton Hotel. This is
the old Chattanooga Union Station. The station, platform shelters, and
sidings, has been lovingly converted to a railroad themed hotel. There is a
regular hotel building, as well as a swimming pool, and old passenger sleeping
cars converted to hotel rooms on the station platform tracks. There ae several
displayys of antique railroad equipment, as well as a short shuttle trolley
ride aboard a 1920's era electric streetcar originally from the city of
New Orleans Louisianna. This car seen here beyond the sign, originally worked
for the New Orleans Public Service Company.
