CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- We are learning more about the changes coming to the Chattanooga Choo Choo.

A full scale renovation is underway at the Choo Choo Hotel and Gardens. The hotel will be increased to nearly 130 rooms, have a 150 person capacity ballroom with a courtyard, an outdoor pool, and new restaurants among other features.

The project is coinciding with some of the train cars being moved to the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum. However, 17 different train cars will be rearranged either next to the hotel or in the gardens close to their original locations when they were in service.

The project is being headed by Trestle Studio and Northpoint Partners in conjunction with Choo Choo Partners, and is expected to be completed by the middle of next year.
