Train ready for Santa

Bluegrass Railroad volunteers in Versailles spent part of their Thanksgiving holiday decorating the train and station in anticipation of Santa's visit. Each December Santa rides the train and talks with the children. This year Santa will visit the station Saturday and Sunday as well as Dec. 21 and 22. The train leaves the station at 2 p.m. for a 90-minute ride with Santa. Ticket prices range from $11.50-$18.50 per person. Advance ticket purchase is recommended.
