The New YorkTransit Museum’s always delightful Holiday Train Show is back for the sixteenth year, continuing in Grand Central through February 4. A collaboration between Lionel and TW Design, the thirty-four-foot-long, two-level layout features plenty of old favorites with some new touches. As you walk inside the New York Transit Museum Gallery Annex, you are met by a model of Grand Central itself, in front of the MetLife building. Follow along as the Lionel “O” gauge trains motor past such city monuments as the Empire State Building (complete with King Kong) and Philip Johnson’s AT&T/Sony building, along with cozy smaller stops reminding everyone of a relatively simpler time. Complementing the display this year is a bright and cheery cityscape by Brooklyn-based artist Josh Cochran depicting multiple forms of travel.
