Train hobbyist Don Oeters founded EnterTRAINment Junction in 2008 to showcase railroading in an educational and amusing way. Two years later, his 80,000-square-foot facility was voted Ohio's Best Family Entertainment Center of 2010.
At the centerpiece, a 25,000-square-foot indoor model train display dazzles visitors with 90 G-scale trains and 2 miles of track winding through handcrafted landscapes, including an 11-foot waterfall, thousands of trees, and scenes documenting railroad's early, middle, and modern periods. Each train car is the size of a loaf of bread, making it easier for groups to see it or break it into communal pieces, and Oeters and his staff continually tweak the locomotive's surroundings by adding seasonal touches and installing minor or major updates. Historical train artifacts, educational videos, and interactive exhibits await amblers in the railroad museum, and the Imagination Junction kids' area entertains youngsters with train-themed play structures.
Lamps, sconces, and chandeliers cast a warm glow over cozy furnishings inside Lighting EFX's two showrooms, which the owners designed to "enhance the visual experience" of their clients. Their knowledgeable sales team greets customers and helps them navigate through indoor and outdoor lighting arrangements, both flocked by home accent pieces and migratory pink-flamingo statuettes. From among their merchandise, ceiling lights illuminate domiciles from overhead, and an array of stained-glass or polished-chrome accent lamps add both style and brightness to rooms. Old-fashioned outdoor gas lamps, all boasting an oil-rubbed bronze finish, cling to walls or stand atop posts, as a swarm of exterior hanging lights dot the night air.
