Grand Central turns 100 in 2013 and the New York Transit Museum is starting the party early with its 11th Annual Holiday train Show! In a brand new layout built by Lionel, model Metro-North and New York Central trains depart from a miniature GCT on a 34′ long two level "O" gauge layout. Vintage model trains from the Museum’s collection and New York Central Railroad posters from the 1920s – 1940s are also on display.

The show, at the Transit Museum’s annex at Grand Central, runs from November 21, 2012, through February 10, 2013.
