Music City Star, the rail line that runs from Wilson County to downtown Nashville, has sold all of its 900 tickets allotted for next week’s Fourth of July celebration, Metro Transit Authority officials announced Monday.

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.

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 under will not need a ticket to board; however, they are required to sit in their parent’s lap. 

All tickets have a car number assignment printed on them. Passengers are told their specific car number at their boarding stations.

Weekday Music City Star tickets and passes are not accepted on the July 4 train.

I wonder how difficult would it be to have an extra train car available to be attached only when needed (as in the normal sized train sells out). The Star looks so short and tiny that it makes me wonder if it can ever make a profit at maximum ridership.

Of course you'd only want to attach the extra car(s) when enough tickets were sold because otherwise it would waste unnecessary fuel pulling the extra car.
