Chattanooga Choo Choo is a 1984 film released as a light summer comedy featuring the eponymous train, starring Barbara Eden and George Kennedy.


The film follows the story of football team owner Burt (Kennedy) who will inherit one million dollars from a railroad tycoon if he can successfully drive a steam train from New York City to its namesake of Chattanooga, Tennessee, in 24 hours. He invites his girlfriend (Eden) and his team on the train, who invite their own guests and pick up new ones along the trip.

The comedy is derived from numerous delays along the way.
