Opryland USA, Nashville TN -1975. Opryland opened in 1972 and operated successfully until closing in 1997. Hindered by a location that was prone to flooding and limited in its ability to expand, the park had few options as development encroached. Theme park wall maps are always a little hard to scan or get a decent close up, but this segment gives you some idea where this photo was taken. It seems our train has just left the Grinder's Switch Railroad Station. And say, that trestle was pretty close to the Gaslight Beef Room! This park gets extra points for originality in location names.
