THE BEAUTY OF APPALACHIA ON KENTUCKY’S MOST SCENIC TOURIST RAILROAD

Welcome to the online home of Big South Fork Scenic Railway, in beautiful Stearns, Kentucky!

We operate on seven miles of historic trackage once owned by the famed K&T Railway. Enjoy wide open vistas, roaring rivers, and the history and charm of Appalachia, as we transport you back in time to our halfway point- the Barthell Coal Camp, the sight of the Stearns Company’s Mines 1 and 2, and, today, privately owned and renovated by the Koger Family.
