AttractionsHoliday Train Show at Grand Central Terminal
The New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex & Store at Grand Central Terminal is back with its annual Holiday Train Show, whose new layout features Lionel trains traveling through a two-level, 34-foot-long miniature New York City and countryside scene. Vintage trains from the museum's collection, including New York Central models, and posters from the 1920s through the '40s will also be on display.
MTA Metro-North Railroad and Orpheo USA offer this self-guided tour of Grand Central Terminal. Visitors and locals alike can take advantage of the tour—which comes with an audio device, headphones and a map of the terminal—and learn about the structure's architectural highlights and history. Audio is available in English, Spanish, French, Italian, German and Japanese; the MTA will soon introduce an audio-description tour for the visually impaired.
