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 Pullman Sleeper, a 1921 Post Office Car, and a Chessie Class Caboose. Open Tues.-Sat. 9am-5pm, Sun. 1-4pm; Open Mondays from March - Sept.
