You go maybe 5 miles down the tracks through trees and farmland and back with a stop for photos at the tracks end. At the end is a good size trestle with a great view. Along the way you see old cabooses, what looked like an old steam operated crane and other cars on side tracks. The museum is smaller... More

The Railroad Museum isn't very big but worth a trip. Call ahead and make sure there is a scheduled trip that day. They are currently expanding. While the train ride is nice and pleasant it is better suited towards families with small children and seniors. If your a single hipster or more adventurist than this isn't for you. But if... More

If you live in the Central KY area or are coming from the East or West on I-64 and insist on giving your kids a train ride then yes this is the closest option. However, if you are visiting Kentucky and arriving from the North or South via I-75 like most folks that come to our state there are much... More

I took my grandkids on the Christmas train last December. That was the biggest waste of time and money EVER!!!!! The cars were dirty and smelled bad. We could barely hear the Christmas music and the elves didn't know the words to the songs. All they did was stand around. The ride was very boring, a few miles forward and... More

We enjoyed the cars, etc. at the museum. Reminder of days gone by. The indoor museum was very interesting. Got some good pictures of things I recall as a child. Took the train ride. Not very scenic but we had a good time. The man, along the track, that waved an American flag was an added attraction. The conductor in... More

We were on the same train ride that broke down. There were bad reviews posted on the website including ours that were taken down and replaced with pictures of the next days ride. I stated in my review that the staff was rude and unprofessional, that the pictures on the website were a misrepresentation of what we got, along with... More

For train lovers, this is a great place. Hands on things in some places for little ones is always a plus. Fun time just to see the big machines and watch the little ones react.
