Join your KNN neighbors on a full day excursion aboard an iconic steam train journey through the scenic Great Smoky Mountains. 

This year’s excursion will be the Carolina Shine Moonshine Experience – ride in a vintage rail car, enjoy lunch, and sample Carolina Moonshine.  The Carolina Shine, GSMR’s All-Adult First-Class Moonshine Car!   GSMR will be proudly serving hand crafted, triple-distilled, craft moonshine. Some of the smoothest tasting moonshine in the Carolinas!

Offered on the Nantahala Gorge excursion, this shine and dine experience begins in a renovated First-Class train fleet car, The Carolina Shine. The interior features copper lined walls filled with the history of moonshining in North Carolina. Passengers will also enjoy a full service All-Adult First-Class ride with an attendant and their popular Cajun seasoned Pulled Pork BBQ with Sweet Baby Ray’s sauce cooked in special spices and slow roasted to perfection!
