Model of Cincinnati and Train Display

Good morning,

Today's images are of the model of Cincinnati at the Cincinnati Museum Center.  The Duke Energy Train Display has now been integrated with the Museum Center Display for a permanent exhibit. 
The Roebling Suspension Bridge at Cincinnati was John Reobling's pprototype for the Brooklyn Bridge.
I took these pictures through glass without flash with my baby camera, a Canon PowerShot SX 210IS.  I think that little camera does a great job!
In this image you can get the size perspective with other museum visitors in the background.  This is displayed in a giant room and the trains are running.
 This is a model of the building in which we are taking all of these pictures, Cincinnati's Union Terminal.  Images of this building were used as the Joker's Lair in one of the Batman movies. 


All the best,
Lois

Lois, I agree that your Canon PowerShot takes great photos. We use them too and enjoy them as much as you do. The Union Terminal is an impressive building and I might have to watch the Batman films to see it. Best wishes for a Happy New Year to you and Kjell, Katherine and your family!
