The Museum owns 5.5 miles of track, from just west of Versailles, to the bluff overlooking the Kentucky River. Young's High Bridge, also known as the Tyrone High Bridge, continues across the river to the Anderson County side. Each Saturday and Sunday between late Spring and early Fall, the train departs the station at 2 pm for a 90 minute long ride. Currently the train travels to the end of the track, at the edge of the Young's High Bridge. Passengers may disembark to view the top of the bridge and the surrounding scenery. Upon re-boarding, the train returns to the station. We have several types of Special Events throughout the year, to help garner interest in our Museum!

Loved the museum & gift shop. Everyone was very friendly. Going back to ride the train when they have Civil War Day. There are many special days during the year.

Nice scenery for the most part when trees aren't covering everything. Expect more than 90 minutes of time. We arrived 30 minutes before as instructed, boarded and left the station on time at 2:00pm. We arrived back at the station after 4:00pm. Time is exceeded...More

The Bluegrass Railroad museum is small but has some very interesting exhibits. The train ride lasted about 90 minutes, but a 30 minute break was an opportunity to get off the train, take some pictures of the Young's High Bridge, and for the kids to...More

Waited an hour to take the train ride. Didn't leave the station on time as the personnel seemed more interested in filling up the cars than serving the ones already there. Ride was slow, hot, and no photo ops since the "scenery" was nothing but...More

The pumpkin patch train ride was a delight! Train personnel were very informative & pleasant. The ride lasted approximately 2 hours with two stops. Beautiful and scenic trip during the Kentucky autumn season.

Sadly, the trains only run and the museum is only open on the weekend, and we couldn't visit on the weekend. I understand that it's impossible to keep it staffed on the volunteer basis, but would have loved to see inside and to have taken...More

No photo ops; way overgrown brush restricts photos of beautiful horse farms. Nice thought, but need more attention paid to detail!
