It doesn't take long for one to notice the Dollywood Express train as it rolls around the park. I originally thought it served as a "trolley" to get around the park, but it actually is it's own ride. It's a real steam locomotive train, which apparently burns a lot of coal each day. Which is terrible for climate change and pollution in general.
But we rode it, and the seats are not very comfortable. The train moves up some steep hills (which makes me even more uncomfortable) and some of the coal in the smoke will get all over you once the ride is done. This ride existed before the theme park became Dollywood, so I can't blame Dolly Parton too much for this one. But they really need to replace it with a better type of train, or just derail it forever.
