Welcome to the online home of Big South Fork Scenic Railway, in beautiful Stearns, Kentucky!

We operate on seven miles of historic trackage once owned by the famed K&T Railway. Enjoy wide open vistas, roaring rivers, and the history and charm of Appalachia, as we transport you back in time to our halfway point- the Barthell Coal Camp, the sight of the Stearns Company’s Mines 1 and 2, and, today, privately owned and renovated by the Koger Family.
