] Cleveland also had a much larger electric-powered light-rail streetcar system of rail coaches & overhead lines; which were replaced by diesel-powered city transit buses.

Cincinnati once started construction of a subway, but work was abandoned during the Great Depression. Cincinnati has had efforts in the 21st century to revive train service with plans to extend train service from the Cincinnati Airport (CVG) in Kentucky to downtown Cincinnati, to Kings Island. However, funding for this project has not been found. [ [ Cincinnati's Rail + Bus Plan ] ]

There are also several passenger railroad lines and train stations in Ohio which offer scenic train rides.
