Join the Electric Railroaders’ Association on the afternoon of Saturday April 5, 2014 for their 32nd annual guided tour of Grand Central Terminal.
Grand Central Terminal is one of New York City’s most iconic landmarks, and it turns 101 years old this year.
This majestic terminal, officially dedicated on February 2, 1913 at the pinnacle of American long-distance rail travel, originally served as the crown jewel for New York Central Railroad. Today, it services Metro-North Railroad passengers and over 20 million visitors annually. After extensive renovations in recent years leading up to its recent 100th anniversary, Grand Central Terminal is better than ever.
The tour will cover architectural and structural features of the station, including a plethora of platforms, corridors, concourses, rooms and secret passages, as well as various types of locomotives and car equipment.
Participants will learn about upcoming plans for the terminal, such the major ongoing East Side Access Project connecting it to the Long Island Rail Road.
The tour is led by Dan Brucker, Metro-North’s official Grand Central historian. Check out some You Tube videos of Brucker. This guy is colorful and demonstrative!
