Secret City Excursion Train Operations Cease


It is with great regret that we have to announce the suspension of the Secret City Scenic excursion operation. We received notification earlier today from the owners of Heritage Railroad, that they would be unable to renew our Operating Agreement. The reason given was liability concerns.

In nearly two decades of service SARM is most proud of the thousands of volunteer hours worked and tens of thousands of passengers transported safely.

The museum's extensive equipment collection is safe and we will be working on other opportunities in the future. We would like to thank the Department of Energy, CROET, Energy Solutions, the Oak Ridge Heritage Rail Authority, Walden's Ridge Railroad and the Oak Ridge community for their years of support in this endeavor.

All pre-paid reservations have been refunded.
