Bluegrass Scenic Railroad and Museum
Ranked #8 of 20 things to do in Versailles

Attraction details
Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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!

this place is way overpriced and for the ride that we got, I feel like we got robbed at gunpoint..Lol i wouldnt waste my money here . if you want a good train ride, go to the Big South Fork and ride the train at Stearns Ky.

“interesting, slow, needs repair”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

a work in process, needs a lot of work . Cars rusty and ragged, bathrooms not fully converted from storage rooms. Museum was nice, the 'shop' was too crowded. Not much to see but one overlook and the trip itself, but that was calm and pleasant. only one car heated and that got way too hot, plus heat cost another $5 per. I thought it was overpriced by double. Felt like a family run operation with 'house kids' etc running around and just the general atmosphere. Given time, it will become a good attraction. Staff was nice but a little disorganized.

“A nice place to visit.”

The museum is small but the train ride makes up for it. Be sure to go when the weather is mild so you can ride in the open window cars. The countryside is beautiful!

Took the railroad on a day that they had an event. It was the Civiel war hold up and that was so much fun. First the Union and the South had a shoot out then the Indians cane in and took hosteges. The train trip went pass many large farms and lots of history.
