So, technically model train shows are geared towards children, but you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy them, do you? Remember Bobby Bacala on The Sopranos? (Okay, I know it didn’t end well, but still…)
This yearly event is truly fun for everyone. There are more than a dozen large-scale model railway trains–from American steam engines and streetcars from the late 1800s to modern freight and high-speed passenger trains and trolleys.
The scenery that the trains pass through include waterfalls, rustic bridges and tunnels, plus local landmarks like the Empire State Building, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and the Brooklyn Bridge.
Oh–and Thomas the Tank Engine will be there. Score!! Who doesn’t love Thomas?
The show runs daily through January 12th (except for Christmas day) and it’s just a short train ride from Grand Central to get there. It’s probably smart to purchase your tickets ahead of time, due to its popularity.
So check this out. The attention to detail is mind-blowing. I mean, how amazing is this:
