Even if you can’t make it to New York City this holiday season, you can experience a virtual visit via the MTA‘s miniature train show. On display for the 11th year at the historic, century-old Grand Central Terminal in Manhattan, the Lionel Grand Central Express is a two-level, 10-meter-long miniature NYC and suburb set featuring vintage trains and mid-20th century scenes. The display will be up until Feb. 10, 2013, but you can take a virtual, time=lapse trip any time.
