Romance will soon fill the air at the Historic RailPark & Train Museum. Back for a third year, is the most unique dining experience this Valentine’s Day weekend. Romance at the RailPark, a romantic dinner on the Duncan Hines Dining Car is a perfect way to show that special someone just how much they mean to you.
The evening will start with an opportunity to sip wine while enjoying the sounds of live music in our grand L&N Depot Lobby. A variety of wines will be available at our cash wine bar hosted by Reid’s Livery Winery. The winery offers unique wines made from grapes grown right here in Kentucky. Many of their wines boast international awards and will pair perfectly with your dinner. New this year they will offer mulled wine, a beverage served warm.
Research has demonstrated that we are biologically hardwired to be romantically attracted to our financial opposites. We tend to be attracted to the very type of person most likely to stress us out financially down the road. Learn how to keep finances from ruining the romance when you visit with Carolyn Williams of TaxKY while you stroll through our lobby. She will offer a fun and romantic twist on a compatibility game to see if you and your sweetheart are a match. Then whisk your sweetie away to cozy up together for a movie.
Make your way to our private theater located on the second floor of our museum for a romantic movie. The L&N Theater features a large TV with surround sound and seating for twenty six guests. Our movie attendant will keep the popcorn hot while you relax. Finally, dinner is served.
Climb aboard our fully restored 1949 Duncan Hines Dining Car and enjoy a fantastic meal created by Dafnel DeVasier and her staff at Sweet Temptations. When making your reservation, you will be able to select a dinner option of Chicken, Pork Loin or Salmon. Entrees will be accompanied with a dinner salad, balsamic vegetables, roasted potatoes and homemade bread. Followed up with dessert options of Tiramisu or Italian Cream Cake.
This truly unique dining experience will be one that you will never forget. Bill Dow of Thru The Lens Magic will provide you with a keepsake photograph that will capture the essence of the evening.
Want to do something a little more special? We offer additional options to have several items waiting on your table upon your arrive. Add roses, a bottle of wine and more. We will glad to talk with you about ways to make your experience extra special.
Nothing heats up the romance like a good night’s sleep. Let the night continue with an “I Love my Pillow” from Trent Bedding Co. You can purchase these pillows along with sheets while you visit the RailPark. We will have a limited stock available during Romance at the RailPark.
