Trains Still Pass Right Through These 8 Kentucky Towns And You’ll Love The Nostalgia
Trains are universally interesting, thanks to their history, power and ability to transport us back in time. We’ve shared many places throughout Kentucky where you can ride a train or even learn about the history of the railroad in our state, but now we are going to go right to the spots where you can see trains in action on a regular basis. There are trains running all over Kentucky, through towns, countryside and mountains, but if you pay a visit to these 7 towns, you’ll find that trains still pass right through them and you’ll love the nostalgia.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
