Downtown Train Display

When your alone and life is making you lonely
You can always go - downtown
When you got worries all the noise and the hurry
Seems to help I know -downtown

Okay, now that great old song by Petula Clark will be in your head for the rest of the day. Sorry. LOL
So my son, Jim and oldest daughter, Melissa and I took the grandbabies downtown to see the Christmas train display. Maddie and Cameron loved it. SAS(Sydney) didn't wake up the whole time we were there. Here's a few(maybe more then a few :-) photos of our time there. It is worth the visit and if you are ever in Cincy around the holidays, make sure you visit the train display. And it is free. :-)

maddie did not want to leave Look at Maddie with her face pressed up against the glass. She loved this train display. Thomas the train is one of her very favorite shows and they had a Thomas the train going around the tracks. I love this area that is set up for little people to see the trains up close.

looks like mayberryDoesn't this little town area look real?

Here's a view looking in from the outside. It is alot of work to put this together.

Look at the tracks, trains and train station.

hi sas I told you sweet SAS was sleeping the whole time. She was guarding my leopard print gloves. :-)

hi mommy and maddie Mommy and Maddie.

hi jim and cameron Jim and Cameron

See this police car, it says Cincinnati Police on the side. The detail is great.

And one last photo of the choo-choos as Maddie likes to call them. They also pass out cookies to everyone when you go so Maddie was in heaven. Cookies and choo-choos, nothing beats that.

So go downtown
Maybe I'll see you there
We can forget all of our troubles, forget all our cares
Things will be great when you're - downtown
Don't wait a minute more - downtown
Everything waiting for you




Is Petula in your head for the rest of the day? :-) And don't even tell me you don't remember Petula, you'll just make me feel old. If you want to do pay it forward with me, it's in the post below this. I signed up on Twitter today also, it's on my sidebar. Not quite sure what it's all about yet but thought I'd try it out. Have a good one!

The train display is awesome! Where is it (other than downtown Cincy!)? I remember a big train terminal downtown that was turned into a big market - many years ago.

Brenda said...

I love little miniature things, they're just awesome. Does Maddie have her own train set? I bought a Thomas the Engine starter set for my great niece this year.
