Bluefields Spotlight

Donelson Railway Station


One of Bluefields' most prominent and critical neighbors is the Donelson Train Station and the Music City Star, which has seen significant ridership growth in the last 4 years ranging from 15% to 45% annual increases. 

Located in the center of Donelson Village, with Bluefield Avenue neighbors backing up to the railway line, the Music City Star is a commuter rail service running between Nashville and Lebanon, Tennessee. You can get downtown from Donelson Station in 10 minutes (for $1.75 one way).

The service uses the existing track of the Nashville and Eastern Railroad. The line currently has six stops: Riverfront Station, Donelson, Hermitage, Mt. Juliet, Martha (Tennessee State Route 109 and U.S. Highway 70), and Lebanon. The operation covers 32 miles (51 kilometres) of rail line. Service began on September 18, 2006.

Some of the most sought after locations in urban cities throughout the world are close to a railway station, and this will no doubt be a tremendous asset to Bluefields residents in the coming years.
