Thumbs up Entertrainment Junction Visit

I had the opportunity to visit the new G-scale exhibition Entertrainment Junction in Cincinnati this past weekend. It is a great place to see. Plagerizing from their web page describes it best - "Ninty large, G-scale trains are running everywhere, immersing visitors in a 25,000 square-foot environment. More than two miles of track take visitors on a panoramic journey through three distinct epochs in U.S. history, from the earliest days of steam-engine railroading up through today’s modern diesel locomotives. The layout includes railroading’s Early Period (1830s through the Civil War to late 1890s), the Middle Period (1900 to 1950s) and the Modern Period (1960s to the present).
Train tracks are bustling all around the visitor -- below, at eye level and some even 11’ in the air. There are carefully hand-crafted cities, towns, saw mills and factories, forests, bridges, mountains, valleys, plateaus, intricate trestles, tunnels, trolley cars, and fast-traveling subway trains.
A cascading 11’ waterfall provides a dramatic backdrop for the entire area; water flows through canals and rivers into a large lake." The cost is $12.95.

In addition to the train layout there is a large play area for children with layouts operated by push buttons, a riding toy, and a couple Brio tables. This month there is a free Christmas display with a couple smaller scale layouts. A gift shop, snack bar, and birthday room line the lobby. There was also a separate area where you could, for another $9 fee, see a live funny version of Dickinson's Christmas Story and visit Santa Claus.
