Of all the theme park train rides I've been on I have to say the Dollywood Express is quite simply the best! Unlike other parks, Dollywood doesn't use miniature or scaled down trains. They use full sized steam trains, and for good reason. The railroad actually climbs up a grade into the mountains surrounding the park. The only down side is because it is a real working locomotive you can get ashes and soot in your eyes. If you visit Dollywood you can't miss this scenic, relaxing ride on a piece of history.
