Cincinnati – January 2017 – Custom Cars and Model Trains

Our first weekend outing of 2017 was back to Cincinnati to the Custom Car Show, last attended in 2015. The show itself was held at the Duke Energy Convention Center, in downtown Cincinnati. Going down on a Sunday morning we managed to find parking on the street about a block from the hall and headed in.

Officially called the KOI Cavalcade of Customs Car Show, there were hundreds of the coolest custom cars, hotrods, motorcycles, trucks, and more in two main rooms, with exhibitors along the outside corridors.

All in all it is a decent show, but not too different from the one two years earlier.

On the way back north we stopped in West Chester, Ohio for Entertrainment Junction. They advertise they are the largest indoor train display at 25,000 square feet with more than two miles of track and 90 trains depicting every era of American railroading.

Not sure what to expect we made our way to a warehouse park along the freeway, and headed in. While it is clearly geared toward kids, with a large play area, the models were stunning. We spent a couple of hours going through the train displays twice. This is one that is highly recommended.
