Versailles - Bluegrass Scenic Railroad and Museum

175 Beasley Road

Welcome to the Bluegrass Scenic Railroad and Museum. We are an all volunteer 501c3 not-for-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and display of the history of railroading in Central Kentucky

The Bluegrass Railroad Museum offers visitors a chance to learn more about rail travel in Kentucky. When you arrive, you will see several pieces of rolling stock and other items of historical interest in our "yard." Come inside the station and tour the museum. Many of our displays have been donated by members and friends of BGRM. Enjoy the "N" scale model train layout in our lobby. Purchase train themed items in our gift shop. And on weekends (May thru Oct. & Dec.), climb aboard one of our diesel powered excursions for a relaxing trip through horse country in Versailles, KY. The everchanging countryside makes it a scenic tour year round. Would you like to bring your school group, company or civic organization? Call us for information about a private tour and excursion. We also offer packages for birthdays, weddings and family reunions.

The riding tour was a nice way to pass a couple of hours on Saturday afternoon. There are a couple of photo opportunities and a nice little gift shop to purchase momentos.

Love the idea but feel that the ride 5 miles down the track and back was worth the price. It was billed as 90 minute ride and was 65 at most...we're told would ride thru some beautiful horse country and all we saw was hedges and weeds. Doubt I would go again. On the plus side. It was only $29 for first class air conditioned car. Staff was helpful and nice.

My Dad and came together amf really enjoyed ourselves. Nice relaxing ride with some beautiful scenery! Was able to get off the train and take some beautiful pictures! Very satisfied and well worth the price paid for first class tickets!

Really enjoyed our ride and visit. The place is a bit old and rundown, adding to a laid back charm. The first class cabins are on an old train but very clean and comfy with air conditioning. Volunteers working were very friendly.

We bought 10 tickets for first class. First of all there was no heat on the train, no bathrooms on the train. We went straight down the track no turns no nothing. It says on the website there are sceneic views, there was nothing to look at but woods and rock. For the price we paid we were very disappointed.
