All aboard! Brightly-colored miniature Metro-North trains have been departing from a tiny Grand Central Station and bringing joy to both young and old alike as part of the MTA Transit Museum ’s annual train show . The train show is currently on display for its 11th season at the New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex & Store at Grand Central Terminal . If you can’t make it in person, read on for a fun video simulating a ride on one of these tiny trains.
The main train circling around the exhibit is a Lionel Grand Central Express Passenger Set, which is also on sale at the Museum Store. The two-level, 34-foot-long New York City and countryside scene the set travels through was built as part of Grand Central Terminal’s 100th anniversary celebration. The Train Show, featuring vintage trains , miniature models of NYC buildings and posters from the 1920s through the ‘40s, will be up through February 10, 2013.
