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 Blue Heron Mining Camp, an interpretive center operated by the National Park Service.
We pride ourselves on great customer service- so whether you’re traveling alone, with your family, or planning a large group outing, consider a visit to Stearns, KY! We have many group rate options available, so please get in touch today!
NOTE: Due to on-going weather conditions, the Big South Fork Scenic Railway will not be visiting Blue Heron until further notice. Trains will continue to depart on our regular schedule, traveling on a 1 hour, round trip, departure through the beautiful Big South Fork country.
