Tell City Depot
Tell City Depot

I had the chance to visit the Tell City Depot over the summer, and it's so impressive. After seeing the operation, I want to take one of the scenic train rides soon. There's such beautiful scenery through Perry and Spencer Counties to take in. The Ohio River Scenic Railway does a great job offering a variety of themed rides throughout the year for families to enjoy. The Christmas train is always the most popular among the children.
