Dollywood Express: Alaskan Thunder in the Great Smokies

Like us on Facebook!
In the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains is nestled the town of Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, home to the Friendliest Amusement Park in the USA: Dollywood! Dollywood, named after world famous country music singer Dolly Parton, is home to many attractions from mild to wild, and home of the Dollywood Express. The Dollywood Express is a narrow gauge railroad within the park that takes visitors on a 5 mile journey up to the higher elevations of the north side of the park. Ex-White Pass & Yukon Route USATC S118 “MacArthur” #192, affectionately nicknamed “Klondike Katie”, is pulling the trains up the 5 to 6% grades that make up the Dollywood Express’s route, which are even steeper than those found on the White Pass & Yukon Route! So please, enjoy the Alaskan Thunder that Klondike Katie creates, and the bellows of the beautiful 6″ Crosby 3 Chime, brought to you by Blue Comet Productions!
