This weekend for the Ghost Train, visitors wanting take the tour will be delighted with the train ride to Blue Heron. From there, all guests will be separated into several groups and assigned a guide to walk around to different spots around the community. At each stop there will be a storyteller with a story ranging from spooky to mysterious, intriguing and haunted.
The cost for this event is $12 for adults and $6.00 for children under 12. Visitors are asked to arrive by 6:30pm on Saturday September 24th and the train will depart the Big South Fork Scenic Railway Station in Stearns, KY at 7:00pm. The storytelling portion is expected to last 1.5 hours with the train arriving back at the Stearns Station at approximately 9:30pm. You can drive straight to Blue Heron for the event skipping the train ride all together, but who'd want to do that? If you do, staff requests that you arrive at the Blue Heron site by 7:15pm. Additionally, it is suggested that all guests bring a small flashlight for the event and wear comfortable walking shoes.
