The L&N doesn’t stop here anymore
Published 4:25 am Sunday, May 27, 2018
L&N Day will return to the Berea Welcome Center, 3 Artist Circle, on June 2, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The passenger train may not run through Berea anymore, but visitors will feel like they’ve stepped back in time as they browse through historic memorabilia, watch model trains, and immerse themselves in a place of days gone by.
Join current and former railroad employees for a day of fun, featuring storytelling and live music by master musicians Donna and Lewis Lamb. Collect your own commemorative train ticket and a free L&N conductor hat for kids! Enter a special drawing for a chance to win your own historic photo of Berea’s railroad past and take the history home with you.
“We love sharing our rich history with fellow train lovers and enthusiasts,” Kerri Hensley, Berea Tourism Executive Director. “this event lets us share our stories while also making new memories with friends and visitors in our beautiful station building.”
L&N Day is free and open to the public.
