Join us at our Main Street location. We are the only location in Kentucky with a train running directly down the street. We are a short drive off I-71, exit 22. We are an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization. See the steam engine, 1929 dining car, caboose and museum exhibits.

The model railroad is amazing! The dinning car with the original kitchen was amazing! And to watch the train pass thru town from the outside front of the rail museum was a sight to see! The members that support the museum make you feel welcome.More

Closed when we were there but we could walk around the tracks and see the trains. It is also right on an active rain road line, so you may get lucky and be there when one goes by (they go slow in the area).More
