The Big South Fork Scenic Railway is a heritage railroad in Stearns, Kentucky.

The route runs for 16 miles (26 km) through lush countryside in the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area. There is a stop in the historic coal mining town of Blue Heron, Kentucky which can be toured. There is also a gift shop and snack bar with picnic shelter as well as hiking trails in Blue Heron.[1]

The railroad is restoring a large 1944-era steam locomotive and uses diesel locomotives for its excursion trains.[2]

The adjacent McCreary County Museum (admission included in train ticket) demonstrates life in Kentucky’s coal company towns during the first half of the 20th century.
