The story of a forgotten America.

Derelict Railroad Cars in Kentucky

Many years ago, I hiked out to these derelict cabooses, passenger cars, and miscellaneous cars along the former Louisville & Southern Railway Lexington to Lawrenceburg Division in central Kentucky. They were stored for potential reuse and renovation by the Bluegrass Railroad Museum but at the time, they were inaccessible because of a bridge that needed repairs. Today, the museum runs excursion trains out to the eastern approach of the Young’s High Bridge, passing by these mothballed trains and the old spur to the now-demolished Tyrone Power Plant.
