The Holiday Toy Trains exhibit returns to the Behringer-Crawford Museum in Covington on Saturday.
The museum will also feature elaborate Lego exhibits from the Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Lego Users Group (OKILUG).
Eight Lionel O-gauge model trains will circle 250 feet of track, blowing alongside thirty moving props. With the push of a button, guests suddenly become part of the animated display and can call a firefighter to action as they glide along a pole, bring miniature animals to life, and activate a UFO. cow kidnapper.
Holiday exhibits also feature Lego creations of all sizes, including a giant Baby Yoda (from Star wars), a Christmas tree and an aquatic wonderland, as well as miniature recreations of scenes from classic stories such as Wizard of Oz, Marvel and Harry potter.
The designs are created by members of OKILUG, a non-profit organization dedicated to collecting and constructing sculptures, buildings, creatures and other imaginative objects with the tiny multicolored plastic bricks.
The museum also invites children to put their creative minds to work in the “Lego Maker’s Space”, where guests can assemble their own masterpieces.
