We arrived into the East Chattanooga Station and we all detrained.

The engine was cut off from the train.

A single bus came to take two bus loads of passengers back to the Chattanooga Choo Choo. We all wanted to go the direct route back to the hotel after being out on the hottest day in history in Chattanooga. The bus driver and the Civil War Tour Guide gave us a tour of Chattanooga that no one on this bus wanted. We finally returned to the Chattanooga Choo Choo where Chris Parker and I drove to the Mount Vernon Restaurant. After such a great meal, we returned to the Chattanooga Choo Choo where I ended a long hot day with a nice shower in the room. Tomorrow we are going down into Georgia but that is another story.
