Chattanooga, the 4th largest city in the state, is the county seat of Hamilton County, Tennessee in the United States of America. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 155,554.
Located in Southeast Tennessee on the Tennessee River, near the border of Georgia, and at the junction of two interstate highways, transportation has always been an important aspect of Chattanooga's development.
The city is probably best known for the 1941 big-band swing song "Chattanooga Choo Choo" by Glenn Miller, but it has grown significantly since its days as a railroad hub. Despite a new emphasis on technology and industry, Chattanooga maintains ties to the past and still serves as a major freight hub with Norfolk Southern and CSX running trains on their own lines. The Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum, the largest historic operating railroad in the South, and the Chattanooga and Chickamauga Railway also provide railroad service in Chattanooga. Chattanooga is the current home of the NMRA and the city's public transportation provider is the Chattanooga Area Regional Transportation Authority.
