Looking for a town

Here is a puzzle for you.
Well, it is not an actual puzzle, but it is driving me crazy.
2 1/2 years ago, we drove from Madison, WI to Washington, D.C. stopping off in Asheville, OH, and one other town.
I don't remember, if this town was before or after Asheville, and I don't remember its name.

All I remember, it was not too far off the highway, it had a steam railway, that you could buy tickets for, which we did not do, and there was some historical relevance to the place.

It was a steep incline from the town center to the historical part, with markers all along the way.

I know this is not much to go by, but maybe somebody knows what I am talking about.

@Bohne,
I lived in Madison for 8 years and now live just north of Ashland (Columbus, OH) so you'd think I'd be the perfect person to answer this, but it's only ringing very vague bells. (I haven't traveled in between Madison and Columbus at all by car.)

This seems to be the route you would have taken (may not have been that linear), in case it gives anyone else ideas.

I'll keep thinking.

What highway were you on?

There is an Ashland Ohio and an Asheville, North Carolina?

@PUNKEY,
Whoops. I said "Ashland," I meant "Ashville." (About 20 miles south of Columbus.)

@sozobe,
That could be the Amish Steam train in Sugarcreek...

@Rockhead,
I have been looking at pictures of Harrisburg, but I am not sure.
Need to find some pictures from downtown. I remember it being really small and cute with Antiques stores and an exhibition of oldtimer cars (that was in October 2008). I don't remember all the skyscrapers...

@Bohne,
Two and a half years ago you could have seen this in Sugar Creek:

@Francis,
We weren't there until October and it was not a big show, just some cars in a showroom.
Another thing I just remembered was, there were a lot of bicylcle riders in the hotel that day.
There was some big ride going on.
Trying to find some photographs now.
Not even sure if I took any...

Thanks for all your input so far.
I will keep wrecking my brain.

@Bohne,
OK, I don't think I took any pictures in that town, but I have pictures from Madison (1st October), Asheville (3rd October) and Washington (6th October) which makes me think, it was probably between Asheville, OH and Washington D.C and we were probably there the night of 4. - 5. October 2008.

Not sure, what good that information will do me, yet.

@Bohne,
Do you have any records (credit cards?) of where you stayed overnight?
