Special Benefit Preview of 13th Annual Holiday Train Show at Grand Central
Like many little (and big) boys, my son loves trains so we're looking forward to seeing this years Holiday Train Show at Grand Central. The New York Transit Museum, which is one of our favorite places to visit, will have a special treat for those who enjoy trains.
At the New York Transit Museum this holiday season, Lionel continues its tradition of capturing hearts and imaginations with Metro-North, New York Central and subway trains departing from a miniature Grand Central Terminal on a 34’ long two level “O” gauge model train layout. Vintage Lionel trains from the Museum’s collection and 1930s Lionel advertisements will also be on display.
