The Dollywood Express is an attraction and heritage railway located at Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
It runs along a 2.5 mile loop-to-loop track from the Village to the top of the mountain.
It is pulled by two ex-White Pass & Yukon Route 2-8-2 mikado steam locomotives, each burning two tons of coal each day.
It is the oldest attraction in Dollywood, opening at the theme park as the "Rebel Railroad" in 1961.
In 1986, Dolly Parton became part owner of the property, and the park was renamed Dollywood. The ride, to go with the new name, was renamed Dollywood Express.
Gram and Pops visited here with their family in July 1987.
