One of Cincinnati’s most beloved holiday traditions returns to Cincinnati Museum Center November 8. The Duke Energy Holiday Trains, returning for their 73rd season, headline CMC’s whimsical Holiday Junction featuring the Duke Energy Holiday Trains.
The Duke Energy Holiday Trains have been a Cincinnati holiday staple since 1946, delighting generations as more than 300 rail cars and 60 locomotives chug through a mini metropolis on 1,000 feet of track.
Holiday Junction also includes an interactive winter wonderland where you can build a snowman, create footprints in the snow and climb aboard a riding train to chug alongside and underneath a snowy garden railway layout. Thomas the Tank Engine and his friends are back as well, steaming along mountainside tracks. Brickopolis features fantastical scenes of some of your favorite Disney and comic book characters, populating a world carefully curated to enchant and amuse guests.
Of course, no holiday is complete without a visit to see Santa. Santa makes his grand arrival on Friday, November 29. And though his reindeer are resting up for the big day, Santa will make an airborne arrival at Union Terminal.
Holiday Junction featuring the Duke Energy Holiday Trains is open November 8, 2019 through January 5, 2020. Visit cincymuseum.org/holiday-junction for more details.
