To the Tennessee Central Railway, nothing says romance like murder.
This Valentine’s Day season, they’re taking passengers on a 90-mile round trip through the hills of Tennessee, featuring a murder mystery play performed directly in the aisles of the locomotive. The train departs the morning of February 9th from Nashville, and has a two-hour layover in nearby Watertown, before returning in the early afternoon.
The performance is split into two acts — on the way to Watertown, someone dies, and after the layover, the second act is all about solving the whodunnit. Clay Walker, writer and director for these performances, says that the story is constantly changing, but the murder usually involves some sort of poison.
