Long before interstates, people resting in Bowling Green arrived at
the L&N Passenger Depot. This 1925 structure has been restored and
revived to house a two-story museum where visitors can learn the history
of the tracks by asking questions of a 'real Railroader' like a Pullman
Porter, an L&N Cook, and a Conductor through state-of-the art
interactive galleries. Historical exhibits include "Segregation and the
Railroad," "The Great Locomotive Chase," and "The Civil War and the
Railroad" opening September 2011. Housing one of the region's largest
model railroad displays inside, outside is where to enjoy a guided tour
of an E8A Diesel Locomotive, a 1911 L&N
Presidential office car, a 1949 Pullman Dining car, a 1953 Luxury
Sleeper, a 1921 Post Office Car, and a Chessie Class Caboose.
Open Tues.-Sat. 9am-5pm, Sun. 1-4pm; Open
Mondays from March - Sept.
