This just in! Elephant-only train service now available in Louisville. A tipster sent us this great series of photos detailing the new Elephant Rapid Train Service now servicing Union Station in Downtown Louisville. A request for comment from TARC was denied, but this looks like rather, well, large news.
In reality, the elephants were in town for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus that took place at the KFC Yum! Center over the weekend. A parade of elephants was seen slowly stomping down Broadway and throughout Downtown. There hasn’t been any passenger train service in Louisville for several years now, and our tipster informs us that tracks once leading to Union Station—TARC’s headquarters—have long been removed.
One bit of good news, however: Megabus service has been restored in Louisville on a route between Chicago and Nashville, but no mega-animals on the Megabus.
