List of Ohio train stations
The major cities of Columbus, Akron and Dayton do not have Amtrak service. Columbus is the second-largest metropolitan area in the U.S. without passenger rail service after Phoenix and Las Vegas. Columbus last had service with the National Limited in 1979. Dayton (which lost service in 1979) and Akron (which lost service in 2005) are the eleventh and twelfth.

Cleveland had a subway line crossing the Cuyahoga River on the lower-deck of Detroit-Superior Bridge traveling between Ohio City (near Detroit and West 25th. St.) and downtown Cleveland. Currently, it is open only for historical walking tours. Cleveland also had a much larger, electric-powered light-rail streetcar system of rail coaches and 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.
There are also several passenger railroad lines and train stations in Ohio which offer scenic train rides.

Cardinal (Chicago – Cincinnati – Washington DC – New York)
- Cincinnati Union Terminal (CIN)
The Cardinal enters Ohio near College Corner, travels through Hamilton, and stops at Cincinnati Union Terminal. Most of the Union Terminal has now been turned into the Cincinnati Museum Center at Union Terminal, with the Amtrak train station located in the same building. After leaving Cincinnati, the train crosses into Kentucky, where it follows the Ohio River on the southern border of Ohio to Ashland, Kentucky.
