This downtown Dayton holiday display could mesmerize you for hours

Published: Friday, November 24, 2017 @ 7:56 AM

Virginia Kettering’s model train display, her gift for the community, has been a holiday tradition for more than two decades.

Virginia Kettering’s model train display, her gift for the community, has been a holiday tradition for more than two decades. 

The train and village setup was commissioned by the Dayton philanthropist in 1996. Kettering founded “One World One Christmas,” the annual celebration now called the Dayton Holiday Festival, in 1972.

Kettering and her husband, Eugene Kettering, the son of inventor Charles Kettering, were model train enthusiasts who kept their basement filled with the scaled down replicas. 

“We used to have one on our dining room table,” she told the Dayton Daily News in 1996, referring to a tiny model train that circled the couple’s holiday table delivering relishes to dinner guests. 

Three model trains chug through the scaled-down Christmas village: a trolley on the inner loop, a Christmas train carrying evergreen trees on the middle track and a larger diesel engine runs around the outer track. 

Miniature street lights illuminate buildings with glowing windows. The structures commemorate Dayton landmarks such as Requarth Lumber, the Dayton Daily News and Kettering Medical Center. 

There are countless engaging scenes within the arrangement. A diminutive bride and groom exit a church, a tiny man waits on a bench outside Elder-Beerman and a pocket-size Santa Claus leaves presents under a community Christmas tree. 

The model was refurbished in 2009, and the majority is still original. The only piece missing, a trolley climbing a hill, has been replaced by a train depot.

Today, Chris Schultz, the owner of Schultz’s Hobbies in Kettering, and a team of volunteers from the Miami Valley Garden Railway Society maintain the display and assemble it in the Kettering Tower lobby each year. 

Schultz, who powered up the train display for the holiday season on Thanksgiving morning, said many people have made an annual pilgrimage to see the model train display a family tradition. 

“It’s really awesome to watch kids stand there for hours watching the trains go around,” he said. “It brings joy to me.” 

HOW TO GO: 

Virginia Kettering’s holiday train display, on view Thanksgiving through Jan. 2, 2018,  is located in the lobby of the Kettering Tower at Main and Second Streets in Dayton. 

Lobby hours are Monday – Friday, 8:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. The train can be viewed through the building windows at any time.

Entertaining guests? Here are some Dayton-specific ideas to enjoy the city

Published: Friday, November 24, 2017 @ 8:31 AM

Millions of colorful bulbs have transformed Countryside Park in Washington Twp. into a holiday wonderland for 25 seasons.

If you have friends and family in town for the holiday weekend, you may be looking for some ways to entertain and show off the Dayton area.

Here are four ideas:

1. Visit a museum: Check out the National Museum of the United States Air Force, 1100 Spaatz St., Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, or the Dayton Art Institute, 456 Belmonte Park North, Dayton, or the Dayton Aviation Heritage National Historic Park, which consists of five different sites around Dayton that tell the stories of Wilbur and Orville Wright and Paul Lawrence Dunbar.

2. Attend a festival: The Dayton Holiday Festival kicks off tonight with the Grand Illumination Christmas Tree Lighting followed by the children’s parade at Courthouse Square in downtown Dayton. Woodland Lights in Washington Twp. opens tonight, and attendees can see Countryside Park transformed into a Christmas fairyland.

3. Visit a candy shop: There are plenty of local choices to satisfy your sweet tooth, including multiple locations of Esther Price, and the Golden Turtle Chocolate Factory, 120 S. Broadway, Lebanon. Check out this list of four candy shops in the Dayton area.

4. Visit a MetroPark: Enjoy the outdoors before temperatures drop at one of several parks managed by the Five Rivers MetroParks. There are 19 parks to choose from where you can work off that big Thanksgiving meal with a long hike.
