Knoxville, Tenn – The Three Rivers Rambler begins its fourteenth year of operations with Spring Express steam trains operating Saturdays in May at 10am and 1pm.

On May 31st, the Three Rivers Rambler will operate a special steam train to the historic Ramsey House for a civil war era baseball game. Passengers will have the opportunity to watch the Knoxville Holstons take on the Highland Rum Distillers in a baseball game using the rules, equipment, costumes and culture of the 1860’s. Train departure time for this outing is 11am, with a 3pm return time.

Other excursions this year include Pumpkin Express trains in October and the ever-popular Christmas Express trains in November and December. All excursions this year will be steam.

Guests aboard the Three Rivers Rambler enjoy a 90-minute trip along the Tennessee River. The train departs from downtown Knoxville at the Boathouse on Neyland Drive and journeys past local historical sites, scenic farmland and modern facilities during the 11-mile ride. Parking is free.

The train consists of a steam engine, two coach cars, a merchandise car, an open air car, and a red caboose.  “Our steam trains have become an important tradition for Knoxville families,” says manager Karen Claussen-Bishop, “and we are very excited about our 2014 schedule.”
