Enjoy beautiful Woodford County as Fall rolls in! Cooler temperatures will bring in colorful leaves on and around our line.

The Museum and Gift Shop will open at 12:30, while the train will depart at 2 pm. At the far end of our track, the train will stop, and passengers will have the opportunity to disembark, approach the Young’s High Bridge (near the community of Tyrone), and overlook the majestic Kentucky River Gorge.

After the passengers re-board the train, it will climb back up the hill, stopping again at the Abbott Platform for Life Adventure Center ! The LAC has been growing a Pumpkin Patch, and our passengers will have the opportunity to purchase their favorite! Please bring cash for the pumpkins!

After everyone re-boards a second time, we’ll return to the station. Even with the stop for LAC, the entire trip shouldn’t be much more than 2 hours.

There are restrooms at the station, but not on the train.
