Summer Road Trips: Ohio Train-Themed Road Trip

21 Aug , 2017  

1812Blockhouse continues its review of unique attractions and events doable within a day from Mansfield. As always, this is done with the reminder that some of Ohio’s best places to visit are right here in our own backyard. Today’s proposed trip combines both.

When the website OnlyInYourState.com published a post this past week entitled “This Dreamy Train-Themed Trip Will Take You On The Journey of A Lifetime,” it included a stop right here in Richland County.

The Buckeye Express Diner in Bellville is featured, with the following description:

“For lunch, make a stop at Buckeye Express Diner, where you don’t necessarily have to board an operating train for a locomotive themed dining experience. If you take exit 165 off of Interstate 71, you’ll find this iconic not-your-average diner. (Note: Michigan fans must park across the street).”

The website of the Buckeye Express Diner shares more information about the restaurant, including a menu, specials, location, and more. Reservations are available.

Other stops along the road trip include:

  • Ohio Railway Museum in Worthington
  • Orville Railroad Heritage Society in Orrville
  • Berea Union Depot Restaurant in Berea
  • Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad in Peninsula
  • Dennison, Ohio
  • Hocking Valley Scenic Railway in Nelsonville
