All Aboard!

You’ve got the green light.

The Historic Railpark and Train Museum at the L&N Depot has something for all ages. Vintage equipment and artifacts will stoke the memories of those old enough to have experienced this bygone era in our nation’s transportation past.

Children will be both entertained and educated by informative, interactive displays. Hear from a real L&N Cook, Pullman Porter and Conductor. Listen to five different train sounds and see a corresponding model of each.

After exploring the Museum step outside and climb aboard five restored railcars and hear about their colorful past. The 1921 Railroad Post Office Car, The Duncan Hines Diner, The Towering Pine Sleeper, The Presidential Office Car and The Little Red Caboose.

Also currently under renovation is our E-8 Engine and our newly obtained  “Jim Crow” Passenger Car. Click on the link to view the latest in the restoration progress.
