The Kentucky Railway Museum is in Eastern Time Zone. The time that you purchase tickets for are for the time that the train leaves the station. We recommend that you arrive at least one hour prior to your departure time. When purchasing tickets, you will purchase tickets in a designated color flag car. The only difference in these cars are the number of passengers that each car holds.
