Moonshine Limited Train – May 18th
May 18 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Board the Moonshine Limited as we showcase that good ole mountain dew!
During your visit, be sure to check out the high quality moonshine still of a legendary McCreary County moonshiner on display in the Depot. Arrive early (approximately 30 minutes before train departure) to hear “The Prayer of a Moonshiner” as told by a local storyteller who shares the challenges of making moonshine in the 1930s.
On board the train, you’ll hear a former McCreary County Sheriff and our moonshining storyteller share informative facts, personal stories, and interesting information about the art of moonshining.
Be sure and stop in at the Whistle Stop Restaurant in the Depot and enjoy their special moonshine menu including peach moonshine pork chops and moonshine pie. Adult beverages, Hillbilly Surprise Cocktails and Moonshine Margaritas, are also available.
Beginning at 7:00pm on May 18th, the Whistle Stop offers live music from the popular regional performer, Jonathan New.
