Tombstone Junction was an amusement park which operated right next door to Cumberland Falls State Park in McCreary County Kentucky from the 1960's until 1991 when a series of fires leveled the park.
The park signature attraction was Ole' 77 a standard gauge steam train ride that took visitors on a 2 1/2 mile journey through the Kentucky woods where the train would be robbed every trip.
Here Ole' 77 departs the station with a bit of wheelslip trying to start up on the super sharp curve that was just outside the depot. The locomotive is Union Railroad #77 which today is under restoration at the Big South Fork Scenic Railroad in Stearns, KY.
The deep toned whistle is off a Southern Railway PS-4.
