CINCINNATI — Check this off your Christmas wish-list: The Duke Energy Holiday Trains are returning to the Cincinnati Museum Center on Nov. 8.

The trains will be part of the Museum Center’s larger “Holiday Junction” display, which includes an interactive winter wonderland where visitors can build a snowman, create footprints in the snow and board a riding train.

The Duke Energy Trains are a long-standing tradition in Cincinnati and have been a holiday staple since 1946. This year’s display includes 300 rail cars and 60 locomotives that weave through the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky landscapes on 1,000 feet of track.

Viewers will get a bird’s eye view of the trains from an elevated walkway and see over 100 pieces of custom art including Union Terminal, Music Hall and Paul Brown Stadium.

Holiday Junction at the center will also include Brickopolis — a display of Disney characters, comic book characters and local landmarks made from LEGOs.

This holiday season the original control tower station, Tower A, will reopen to guests from Noon to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday during the holiday season.

"Holiday Junction featuring the Duke Energy Holiday Trains" will run through Jan. 5, 2020.

Admission for the event is $14.50 for adults, $10.50 for children 12 and under, $13.50 for seniors and $5.50 for toddler ages one and two. The price also includes admission to the Museum of Natural History & Science, Cincinnati History Museum and Duke Energy Children’s Museum.
