The BSF Vintage Train Fest is Sunday at Oneida City Park

It's been almost 20 years since an excursion train has brought passengers from Chattanooga to Oneida.

That's going to change Sunday November 10 when Southern Railway #630, a 1904 vintage steam locomotive, will pull an excursion train to Oneida City Park.

Brandon Hughett with the Scott County Chamber of Commerce said more than 400 passenger tickets have been sold. The train is full but you can still enjoy a fun event at Oneida City Park to welcome the train.
