All aboard our star attractions for western North Carolina family adventure. Tweetsie Railroad is proud to operate two vintage steam locomotives: the No. 12 "Tweetsie" and the No. 190 "Yukon Queen." Before entering service at Tweetsie Railroad, the locomotives were put into operating condition by our on-site steam locomotive repair shop.
The Tweetsie Railroad is a theme park operation located in Blowing Rock, North Carolina. "Tweetsie" harkens back to the original East Tennessee & Western North Carolina narrow gauge common carrier that served the region. Two Baldwin steamers carry park riders around a loop of track; locomotives are maintained onsite in a steam shop.
