14TH ANNUAL HOLIDAY TRAIN SHOW FAMILY BENEFIT
Dec 6, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am| Adults: $55 / Children: $30 / Family Pack: $150 for 4 tickets
On Sunday, December 6 from 9 – 11 am, the Transit Museum will offer an exclusive private viewing of the Holiday Train Show at their annual Holiday Train Show Family Benefit. Guests will have a merry time viewing the winter wonderland cityscape display of Lionel model trains without the crowds and will enjoy coffee and hot chocolate, breakfast, and a 20% discount on Transit Museum Store purchases. Proceeds from this fundraising event benefit the Transit Museum’s education programs.
This year’s festive model railroad layout is a 34’ long, two level, “O” gauge cityscape with Lionel Metro-North, New York Central, and subway trains departing from a miniature replica of Grand Central Terminal. Kids will watch in wonder as trains zip through tunnels, by subway stops, around familiar skyscrapers and through underground passages. The annual exhibit will give an up close look at the city’s past, present and future by showcasing Lionel model trains and vintage train models from the Museum’s Collection, against a beautiful winterscape backdrop by local New York City artist, Elaine Norman.
