Riding the rails

The Bluegrass Scenic Railroad hosted a group of 70 children and counselors from the Scott County YMCA Primetime on July 1 for an Independence Day special chartered train ride. The children had lunch in the county pavilion, enjoyed an hourlong train ride, listened to a story of the history of the 1895 Louisville Southern railroad, saw a working telegraph and learned about Morse code.
