The Great Smoky Mountain Railroad rides into town once a day
This train ride is between Bryson City and some scenic locations, where it just stops and goes back. I don't know the details of cost, but there were several kinds of cars, which gave me a pretty good idea of first class vs. tourist open-air car.
