One of our favorite holiday events in NYC is back with the 15th Annual Holiday Train Show at Grand Central. Set against a backdrop designed by Brooklyn-based artist Julia Rothman, the New York Transit Museum continues to celebrate this awesome tradition on view at the Museum’s Grand Central Gallery Annex & Store. During this free event, people can check out the iconic holiday images of a model train, whirring by as it circles the base of a brightly-lit tree, evokes feelings of warmth and wonder in children and adults alike. To the delight of all, Lionel trains will journey along a 34’ long, two-level, “O”gauge model train layout, departing from a miniature replica of Grand Central Terminal on their way to the North Pole. This year’s exhibit showcases Lionel’s Grand Central Express, Metro-North, Pennsylvania Flyer, Polar Express, and vintage subway train sets against a backdrop designed for the Museum’s 40th anniversary.
The 15th Annual Holiday Train Show at Grand Central Terminal is on view from now through February 26, 2017.
