Great Smoky Mountains Railroad hosts New Year’s Eve bash

The Great Smoky Mountains Railroad will ring in the New Year with a dinner and dance Dec. 31.

As the train rolls down the track, attendees can partake in an evening of live music, dancing and dining.

The evening will begin with a reception at 7:45 p.m. in the Smoky Mountain Trains Museum with a selection of beer, wine and mixed drinks as well as an array of hors d’oeuvres, including tiger shrimp with cocktail sauce, steak and roasted pepper skewers and fruit covered in chocolate.

Boarding will promptly begin at 8:45 p.m., and the train will depart from the Bryson City depot at 9 p.m. The trip will feature a three-course dinner on a vintage dining car at the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad, party favors and a champagne toast to 2012.

Alias Smith and Jones, an Atlanta-based acoustic guitar/vocal duo, will be the featured entertainment for the evening.

The event is open only to adults, 21 and over. Dinner train tickets are $135 per person (plus tax and gratuity). Advanced reservations and 72-hour cancellation notice are required. Call the Great Smoky Mountains Railroad for dress code information.
