1:00 – 5:00 pm – Santa Trains!, at the Bluegrass Railroad Museum, 175 Beasley Rd, Versailles

When snowflakes start to fly in Kentucky, Santa and Mrs. Claus bring Holiday Cheer to the Bluegrass Railroad Museum!

Six trains will be available this year! On Saturday the 10th and the 17th, we’ll have trains at 11 am and 2 pm. On Sundays, the 11th and 18th, we’ll have a 2 pm train.

Once the train pulls out of the station for a two hour train ride, Santa visits with every child. Our Conductors and Car Hosts will help you pass the time while waiting for your turn with the jolly old elf. Enjoy singing carols, watching the winter countryside or just relaxing with your family. At the end of the ride, there are candy canes for everyone before Santa gives his final farewell.

Unfortunately, we don’t offer restrooms onboard the train.

You may purchase tickets online. The larger your party is, please arrive earlier, such as 10:15 for the morning trains, or 1:15 for the afternoon trains. It will be easier to seat you together if you board early.
