Stone Mountain Railroad

All Aboard! Join us at our train depot and learn how Stone Mountain Park’s Rock Line Railroad operates.

Witness live, interactive demonstrations and signaling techniques led by our engineer. Discover what a diesel-electric locomotive is, when it was built and how it generates enough power to pull over 350 tons! Then climb aboard, take a train ride into history and learn about the Georgia Railroad, the transport of Stone Mountain granite, and how to engineer a train through Stone Mountain terrain. Also included is a self-guided tour of Discovering Stone Mountain Museum, which features 12,000 years of Stone Mountain history including two Civil War exhibits.
