It’s that time of year when the New York Transit Museum‘s annex at Grand Central Terminal once again hosts its holiday train show. Free to the public, the model train exhibit features scale models of Grand Central Terminal, the Met Life Building, and the Chrysler Building, as well as numerous other buildings and small details. It’s not a huge exhibit, but children and model train aficionados will still enjoy it. The train show will be on display until February 21, 2016.
Unsurprisingly, my favorite part of the exhibit is the part related to the MTA system, specifically the subway train and the elevated train station.
An additional benefit to the train show’s location: it’s in the New York Transit Museum’s store, where there are all kinds of train and subway-themed options for holiday gifts. And if you go before Christmas, make sure you stop by the Grand Central Holiday Fair as well – I’ve previously wrote about the Holiday Fair here.
How can you get here? The 4, 5, 6, 7, and S subway lines all stop at Grand Central, as do numerous buses. You can also take the Metro North Railroad. The New York Transit Museum annex and store is located in Shuttle Passage.
