You guys probably already know about this, but in case anyone doesn't,
I happened on a wonderful model train display in midtown NY at the
Citigroup Center (53rd between Lex and 3rd) There are three scales of
track, an elaborate surround, set somewhere in the 1940's and 1950's.
There is even a drive-in movie theatre showing "High Noon" - the actual movie is showing, not a still! The lighting takes you from
sunrise to sunset. Lots of nostalgia there for
railfans of a certain age, I would think. Best of all, there are an
enthusiastic group of volunteers making everything run smoothly, and
they love to talk trains and model trains. It's open until Jan. 4th.
Put together by Clark and Barbara Dunham.
For you out of towners, the #E, #F, and #6 trains all stop within
a block of the building. Within a couple of weeks, you can even buy my subway shirts across from there at City Sports (that's how I stumbled on the display!)
