The Regional Transportation Authority (RTA) has sold its allotment of 940 tickets available to the general public for the RTA's special July 4th Music City Star train to the Nashville fireworks at Riverfront Park.
The train will depart from Lebanon at 4 p.m., with stops in Martha, Mt. Juliet, Hermitage and Donelson before arriving at Nashville's Riverfront Station at 5 p.m. The return train to Lebanon leaves 30 minutes after the conclusion of the Nashville fireworks.
Customers who purchased the special train tickets will need to show their ticket to the conductor when boarding on both trips. Children age 4 and younger will not need a ticket to board; however, they are required to sit in a parent's lap.
In order to ensure that passengers traveling together will be seated in the same passenger car, tickets will have a car number assigned on them. Passengers should enter that specific car at their requested station. After the fireworks, passengers should be seated in that same train car for easier exiting at their designated station.
Backpacks and folding chairs will be allowed onboard. Any items that will not fit underneath the seat, such as large coolers, bikes and wagons, are not permitted on the train. Parking is free at all of the outlying stations.
Following deboarding at Riverfront Station, the train will move out of the station so its locomotives will not interfere with performances on the Riverfront stage. Passengers will not be able to return to the train during the July 4th festivities. To get some relief from the heat, misting stations and water fountains will be set up at 1st and Broadway.
The train is scheduled to depart from the Lebanon Station at 4 p.m., stop in Martha at 4:13 p.m., Mt. Juliet at 4:24 p.m., Hermitage at 4:33 p.m., Donelson at 4:44 p.m. and arrive at Nashville's Riverfront Station at 5 p.m. The return train to Lebanon leaves 30 minutes after the conclusion of the Nashville fireworks.
