Fun Dinner Date Night or Family Outing in Lexington KY!
Say goodbye to this building, but not to the Lexington Dinner Train. The glass holding station with the distinctive spires will be gone within two years. The building holds an old steam engine that used to operate in China. It was recently ruled that the structure violates the lease restrictions. If you want to see it before it is torn down, it is located behind Rupp Arena and can be clearly seen by traveling west on Manchester Street from South Jefferson.
The Lexington Dinner Train launched last August and is owned and operated by the RJ Corman Company, which also runs the Kentucky Dinner Train in Bardstown. The train runs from downtown Lexington to Versailles operating two cars with a capacity of 100 people. Dinner and lunch excursions can be booked on various Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year. Now is a great time to book your outing as the tree leaves haven’t filled in yet. From your train window you’ll be able to see historic McConnell Springs, Calumet, Keeneland Racetrack, and beautiful rolling hills of Kentucky Bluegrass.
Although you won’t be able to disembark from the Lexington Dinner Train in Versailles, you might wish to come back at another time to explore this charming town. With a population of about 9,000, Versailles offers the perfect blend of rural living with the urban life of Lexington just 20 minutes away. Homes for sale in Versailles range from $76,000 to $30 million.
