Grand Central Terminal Train Show

  • Grand Central Termina 89 East 42nd Street New York, NY, 10017 United States (map)

Nothing says holiday enchantment quite like the iconic image of model trains whirring by as they circle around the base of a magnificently lit tree. Dazzling both children and adults alike, the Transit Museum’s annual display features Lionel trains traveling 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 exhibition showcases our Lionel Metro-North, Polar Express, and vintage subway train sets against a cityscape backdrop designed by Brooklyn-based artist Josh Cochran.
