Track Rehabilitation

The Bluegrass Railroad Museum owns 5.5 miles of track on the old Lexington to Lawrenceburg Subdivision of the Southern Railway. Our ownership extends from milepost 9 (Beasley Road Crossing) to milepost 3.5 (the east end of the Youngs High Bridge).
Currently the BGRM operates between milepost 9 and milepost 3.5 which is the end of our trackage at the east end of Young's High Bridge in Tyrone. On 5-10-12, after nearly a years worth of work on the line, the first train in over 12 years returned to Youngs High Bridge.
