Ride a quarter-scale train through a wonderland of twinkling holiday lights at this mini-railroad and museum in Findlay. The North Pole Express transports passengers along a half-mile track for a nostalgic, if chilly (dress for cold weather — coaches are open- sided) trip. Warm up at the NWORRP museum with hot chocolate, popcorn, hamburgers and hot dogs, and admire the model-train layouts.
