Christmas Train Display - Krohn Conservatory

Good morning,

The Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati is literally right down the street (well, Parkway, actually) from where we live.  We pass it when we go downtown and we go there to visit several times a year.
There is a beautiful Christmas Train Display this year.  This is a cable car reminiscent of the old Cincinnati Incline.  For Cincinnati readers who know about the Incline, I remember it from pictures my parents took.  The Incline was long gone by the time I was born.  ;)
There are familiar structures from around the world.
And, above is a wonderful train that slowly winds its way around the room.

 Even Thomas the Tank Engine is here!
 And, Thomas brought some friends.
 This little cable car has the emblem of the Cincinnati parks on the side.

 What a fun display!

 I walked around several times and kept taking pictures from different angles.
 Then I spotted a replica of the building in which I was standing almost hidden among the flowers.
 I'm so glad we stopped in today and I hope you've enjoyed the images, too.

All the best,
Lois

Your post brought back many memories of visiting Krohn Conservatory and Eden Park, Lois. The Coleus plants in the display remind me of ones my grandmother always grew on the window sills, while we lived in Cincinnati on Pike Street. I believe there are beautiful expensive condominiums there now. In the early 50's one could see remnants of an incline across the river in KY... as a child it amazed me.

We have friends that are very into trains. They would love this post.
Nice to see you are all ready for the holiday, with the tree decorated and yummy pot roast out of the oven.
Merry Christmas!

Fabulous post, totally fabulous. And there was an incline in Portland in the past, I've learned. Thanks for a great one, Lois.

As you can see, I am catching up slowly on blog reading. The last few weeks have been busy and didn't allow much time for reading or commenting.

I love the train display! We've visited several big conservatories like this and I would love to have one close enough to drop in several times a year to see the seasonal changes.
