Description

The Dalton Freight Depot was orginally built as the Southern Railway Freight Depot in 1911. The depot was restored by the city in 2009 and today houses the Dalton Visitor's Center and Gift Shop. Inside, explore display cases on railroad and Civil War history.
The Freight Depot is a train fan's delight with a covered viewing platform, an ATCS monitor that allows you to see approaching trains, live audio feed from train radios and live streaming web cam. Watch the dual tracks of the CSX and Norfolk Southern Railroads pass the "Dalton Diamond," a 45-degree rail crossing directly in front of the viewing platform. Adjacent to the depot is the 1949 Southern "Crescent City" Pullman car.
This is the place to start your visit to Dalton. Open daily 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed Sundays.
