I know they had one last year in downtown Cincinnati at the Duke Energy Building. I believe it's around Fourth and Main streets.

There is also the train station (Union Terminal) although there is not a huge amount of train memorabilia left in the old place.

We saw the Duke Energy display yesterday and it was really good. The Museum Center at Union Terminal is another good suggestion. Once a month or so, there is a club there that opens up the train control tower to the public. Also, around this time of year, there is on a special holiday train display. See cincymuseum.org for details.

These displays are smaller, but you'll get a personal tour from the operators:

Davis Electronics on Main Street in Milford
Grant's Farm on Bucktown Road, between Newtonsville and Williamsburg in Clermont County.

For future reference, about 20 miles north of downtown Cincinnati (Exit 22 off of I-75N) is a place called EnterTrainment Junction (EnterTrainment: Home (http://www.entertrainmentjunction.com/index.html - broken link)). That might be a good stop.

Thanks! I go by there every week day and I've wondered what it was! Now we'll definitely have to make a trip down there!

Default EnterTrainMent Junction

We took my niece and nephew to EnterTrainMent Junction in West Chester, yesterday. It was a little expensive to get in - about $13 for adults, a bit less for kids (I don't remember how much), but kids under 3 are free. The kids loved it. There is a nice play area and some Thomas Train themed activities. I think I heard that it has the largest model train collection in the country, or something like that.
They do have Christmas themed exhibits, as well as a "find the Santa" in the main exhibit.
Overall, I thought it was pretty fun myself.
