Hotel, train and song.

This is the train station that the Cincinnati Southern Railroad's train that was called the Chattanooga Choo-Choo departed from. A newspaper reporter dubbed the huffing and puffing little steam locomotive the Chattanooga Choo Choo. Although the Chattanooga’s Terminal Station was significant in its role of the train era with it’s “Track 29�?, little was known about the first Chattanooga Choo Choo. Only after Glenn Miller's orchestra made the catchy song popular in the late 1940's did the name become world famous. Introduced in 1941 by the Glenn Miller Orchestra, the song was featured in the movie "Sun Valley." The song, "Chattanooga Choo Choo," traveled fast throughout the circles of Europe during World War II.

The station has been turned into a railroad themed hotel.
