Railroading’s finest hour in Kentucky

by The 100 Companies

The 1940s became known as “railroading’s finest hour” when the rail systems provided war aid across the United States. Today, in Kentucky, you can experience a bit of that nostalgia thanks to My Old Kentucky Dinner Train.

In 1987 R. J. Corman Railroad Company purchased the 20-mile branch, originally constructed in 1860. The three dinner cars were built in the late 1940s and have since been refurbished so people can have the true experience of a historical adventure on the rails.

The train offers meals, special events, and even a New Year’s Eve Celebration Excursion that takes you back in time.
