Holiday Train Show at Grand Central

Thu Nov 21, 2019
Various times
All ages

Every holiday season, the New York Transit Museum’s Grand Central Gallery plays host to a city within a city with the display of a miniature electric railroad running over, through, and beneath some of New York’s most magnificent landmarks.

Celebrating its 18th year of operation, this beloved annual holiday exhibit features model trains traveling along a 34’ long, two-level, “O” gauge model train layout.

Departing from a miniature replica of Grand Central Terminal, the Transit Museum’s collection of Lionel trains – including Metro-North, Polar Express, and vintage subway train sets – dazzle the eyes of children and adults alike as they make their way past New York landmarks and on to the North Pole!

Free and open to the public.

Monday – Friday, 8am to 8pm
Saturday – Sunday, 10am to 6pm
