The Bluegrass Railroad operates antique passenger cars built in the 1920's and 1930's over track built by the Louisville Southern Railroad in 1889 to link Louisville and Lexington. Passengers traveled this line until the 1950's with freight operations continuing until the 1980's. The Bluegrass Railroad Museum has been operating in this location since 1986. The line runs from West Versailles to Youngs Hign Bridge at Tyrone on the Kentucky River. Youngs High Bridge, built in 1889, is the only cantiliver style railroad bridge east of the Rocky Mountains and stands unchanged from when it was built.
