What is Summerail?

    Summerail is an annual railroad themed multimedia exhibition held on the second Saturday of August.  Summerail began in 1995 as a joint project of the Cincinnati Railroad Club and Miami Valley Railfans.  For the first 20 years it was held at the magnificent Cincinnati Union Terminal.  Due to renovations at Union Terminal and the growth of the audience exceeding the theater capacity in Cincinnati, Summerail moved to the historic Palace Theater in Marion, Ohio in 2016.  This magnificent venue provides ample seating and is conveniently located within walking distance of the Marion Union Station and the heavy railroad traffic it has to offer.  The Marion Union Station Association has excellent train watching facilities and historic displays at the station, including the restored AC interlocking tower.

Note: Since the theater has an abundance of seating, we are not selling tickets anymore like in the past. Instead, we are now just taking cash or a check at the door, and no credit cards.
